Lilac


How realistic and pretty is this lilac? This is another decoupage image but is only 4 layers deep. Seems most of the ones I do are 6 or more, so this was an easy one! I curled these images under a little bit to give a puffier look since lilacs are, well, puffy! The background paper is something I found on a vintage graphics site and is actually vintage wallpaper. I cut the frame around the lilac on my cricut using my fav Home Decor cartridge. The frame and the punched butterflies are made with pink foil cardstock which just looks so pretty on this card. I had a chunk of vellum so I used that for the lilac backdrop and some fancy corners. A lot of people have asked me for the link to this lilac, so if you are interested, you can find it HERE. Have a great day and thanks for taking a peek!
