Negative Lilies

Little inky heaven.  My one-layer card required the use of 4 different shades of purple.  I didn't even know I had that many!  I borrowed Susan's, a.k.a. LateBlossom's, favourite layout for this card.  I used my quilt ruler and gridded acrylic block to line up my image from MFP's Flower Blocks and then emboss them in clear powder.   If you look carefully, I still don't think it's perfectly lined up.  Grrrr. I then sponged in my inks.  I thought it would make a fabulous sympathy card but I've noticed a big hole in my stamp collection.  All my sympathy stamps are small.  I thought this sentiment from MFP's Hydrangea was a good alternative.  Please come join us for Speedy Fox and Friend's challenge to emboss in white and then sponge a background.
