Out came my long neglected Lavinia stamps and a circular masking card I made many moons ago. I love using purple with Lavinia stamps - it seems such a magical mystical colour so suited to their beautifully enchanting images.
I used a washi tape border on two sides and some mini pearls to add impact. Oh and of course a little sparkle using Wink of Stella.
Inks: Ranger distress, dusty concord, milled lavender; Memento, grape jelly
Punch: Xcut corner rounder
Embellishments: Washi tape; doodlebug mini pearls, Spring assortment; Kuretake Wink of Stella, clear
Now I couldn't just put all that purple away without making another card and as I said the other day I knew it wouldn't be long before I repeated this card in a different colourway. And that's what I've done:
I'm thinking this card is also Clean & Simple, but I'd be really happy to be corrected if I've got it wrong.
Stamps: Clearly Besotted, In The Frame & matching die
Inks: Memento, grape jelly, tuxedo black
And then while I was in the purple mood I remembered this:
Now I don't think this fits any of The Card Concept's styles and is so far away from how I've been creating recently, but I adore Lavinia stamps. I'd actually forgotten all about this card and am so pleased it didn't find its way to the bin. I still love inky creations and this beauty is now being displayed on my workroom wall.
Stamps: mostly Lavinia
Inks: Ranger distress ink, dusty concord, chipped sapphire; Versafine, onyx black
Thanks for looking today.
So sweet, and the banner one, cool. love it!!! And as for the style, I asked and they don't require that really, ...so you are good. And I think you are clean and simple too!ReplyDelete
