I am still playing with embossing paste here. For this background, I mixed a little bit of Almost Amethyst ink into the clear embossing paste before spreading it across the stencil.
I die cut a flower out of green, and used the “petals” for leaves.

Works a treat, Kathy! The soft lilac is really pretty. I like how you made the leaves too.

Thanks, Gillian! I struggled with the leaves – none of my leaf dies were the right scale for this flower. Then, looking at my pile of punched out petals, the light bulb over my head went on!

That light bulb is serving you well!

Somedays, yes. Other days, the electricity is not on!
