Tuesday Talk

Today I've indulged myself by using some gorgeous purples and pinks for a card made for the STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch challenge and Sir Stampalot's March challenge theme Flower Power.

Here's my purple passion:

I put some card through a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then stamped the flower over the top in all three colours, rotating the stamp a little between layers. This gave me the texture and splodgy look I wanted for the background layer of my card.

I stamped the flower in purple then rotated it slightly and just inked up the edges in the lilac before stamping it again.  Then I rotated it a bit more and inked the edges in pink before stamping for a third time. A narrow matted purple border on both the background and flower layers and my card was done.

Stamps: Visible Image, Flower Inkognito; Uniko, Simply Said
Inks: Memento, grape jelly, lilac posies, rose bud, tuxedo black
Embossing: Cuttlebug, branches

Thanks for visiting my blog today, I really appreciate the time you spent with me here.

And keep crafting!
