To get myself out of the winter doldrums
I buried myself in creating yesterday....

I was inspired by a Facebook Group ~ Artsy Addicts Challenge
to create with Purple....

What better Die~Namites Dies to use than the Lilacs Die!

I cut multiple Lilac images
from TA Frayed Cotton Mistable Paper.

I cut out individual blooms and leaves from
the Lilac image.

I then, colored with the image with
Splash of Color ~ Luminarte ~ Primary Elements
Black Orchid (close right??!?)

create your OWN SPRING!!
