Vase of Lilacs



Don't these flowers look real!  I can almost smell the wonderful aroma from these beautiful Lilacs.  I created white, and a two of shades of purple lilacs using Susan's Garden Notes Lilac dies. The purple flowers were die cut using colored card stock and the leaves and white flowers die cut using white card stock.  The leaves were colored using Distress Ink.  Susan's Flower Tool Set was used to shape the flowers and leaves.

The vase I put them in is the Asian Vase; it was the perfect size for this bouquet of Lilacs.   This vase comes with two dies -- the solid back and the pretty overlay design.  The back piece was die cut using purple card stock.  The overlay was die cut using white card stock that was backed with the ECD Transparent Double Sided Tape so it would be easy to attach to the purple back.  To give it a glossy look, I patted the vase with VersaMark Ink making sure ink covered every area -- since the VersaMark pad is spongy, I was able to press it down below the white die cut.  It was covered with Clear Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. 

This vase of lilacs is the perfect size for a pretty card or to decorate a box or home decor piece.

I absolutely love lilacs, so much so that my husband brought a cutting of them to me when I was in the hospital! So sweet of him!

Selma, these lilac are stunning! Is there a tutorial somewhere for creating these lilacs? Is it simply a matter of die cutting and shaping them and then gluing them on the stem?
