Anyway, enough waffle and on to the new challenge at Make My Monday which this week is to make something in shades of Purple With Just One Neutral Shade Allowed. I really loved this one as it's a favourite colour of mine and I used to be known as the Purple Queen at the stamp club I went to. I hope you like my card.
As you can see I've made up for the CAS challenge last week and gone right back to my favourite shabby and distressed style.
The background paper was made using Seedless Preserves and Milled Lavender Distress Stains and I sprayed it with water to spread the colour. When it was dry I stamped on a filigree corner by Inkylicious in Lavender Sachet and Iris Palette inks. I stamped it repeatedly for a layered look. I then distressed the edges with an emery board and added it to a square cream card blank.
I stamped the daisies (B Line Designs) with the Lavender Sachet and Iris inks and then added just streaks of colour with Promarkers. I cut them out and shaped them by curling the petals round my decoupage scissor blades.
I stamped the butterfly by Kaisercraft with the Iris ink and added colour with Prismacolor pencils then cut it out and rounded the wings as I did the flower petals. I then stamped the Hero Arts sentiment with the same ink and trimmed to a panel by hand.
I assembled the card as you see adding a cream doily and some purple velvet ribbon.
Have a great day.
Hugs, Fliss xx
