Going Purple With Make My Monday

Hello folks, hoping that you all had a good weekend with at least some good weather. Mine was really busy as I'm madly trying to get ahead before I start my job next week. A wardrobe overhaul is also on the cards as I need to check I have things to wear in an office (having worked from home I have quite a lot of jeans and t shirts as I'm sure you can imagine!)
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

Sounds like a bit of change afoot Fliss, I think it would be a total culture shock to me if I had to suddenly start dressing for the office (working in hubby's is not quite the same). But good luck with it.

And a really scrummy card, lovely the colours and blooms.
