Lavender and lace

Lavender and Lace - What I can do this past week as been very limited; as I had surgery on my left wrist. The challenge this week at Crafts for Eternity is to use inks or sprays on your project. I wanted to do some ghosting for this, but with only one workable hand, that was out of the question.

I finally settled on using my sprays. My first attempt used 2 colors and they looked a muttled mess, so that idea went into the trash. 

This time I used a mask from Tattered Angels and sprayed this purple. The black stamp is a cordinating stamp from Tattered Angels. I am much more pleased with this result. 

My DT project for Alphabet Challenge Blog was to use lace, so I found this lovely lace in my stash.

I used a SU die for the leaves and my purple flower is from Pizzazz Aplenty
