Design D.I.V.A.S Blog Hop: Merci

Welcome to the Design D.I.V.A.S Oldies, but Goodies Blog Hop!!  This is the last stop in the hop and if you came from my dear friend, Linda's blog you are in just the right place, and if not, please start at the beginning HERE. The challenge is to create a card/project/scrapbook page using stamps or supplies that are 6 months old.  Well, the first Layers of Color stamp set I bought last summer was Merci Bouquet and thought it would be perfect.  I spritzed an Ivory piece of cardstock with Caribbean Blue Tattered Angels mist and stenciled the Delicious Dots art stencil using Vivid Aqua ink.  The background script is from stamped gray ink.  Recently I discovered the beautiful inking qualities of Versafine Black ink which I used on the floral images, Embroidered Butterfly and sentiment.  The only "new" thing on this design is the Grommet Tags from Spellbinders, oops! :o) couldn't help it, lol! 


Thanks for hopping with us today and I hope you have a wonderful day!
Blessings,

Ooh, ahh...I this in blue! The stencil looks fantastic with the Merci flowers in the ovals. The butterfly goes with them so well.

The black on the blue is gorgeous! I love the contrast. The butterfly really looks like it just came off a piece of vintage embroidery. Gorgeous.
Thanks for sharing! :)
