Hi everyone, I was really excited when Marina from Inkspirational asked me to be a guest designer for this colour challenge. I seem to use purple a lot so I definitely think it's one of my favourite colours!
For more information pop over to Inkspirational, the design team have some wonderful projects to inspire you.
I bought this verse stamp recently from Jemac Stamps and this is the first time I've inked it up.
I recall having this prayer and the Desiderata hanging up at home when I was growing up, so finding the stamp brought back lots of fond memories.
I tried the Belleek inspired technique for the background. There are so many beautiful examples by card makers and I'm not sure where I first saw it. I brayered the label side of the embossing folder with bundled sage distress ink, so the embossed card came out with the raised white design highlighted. I love the effect, just need to practice a lot more!
The greenery is cut from snippets of green card with Memory Box Madeira die. I've trimmed pieces off to fit into the corner. The flower is one of the Stampin Up Flower Shop stamps, coloured with Inktense pencils and shaped. I layered 2 together for dimension.
I'm linking up to a couple of challenges.
Pixie's Crafty Workshop where you just need to use a snippet on your card to join in.
At Cuttlebug Mania the theme is Let's Feel It, to add texture. You also need to use a manual machine like a Big Shot for your project.
Materials used: Rebecca embossing folder; Jemac Stamps verse; Stampin Up Flower Shop; Inktense pencils; distress ink; Mpress label die; Memory Box Madeira Corner die.
Thanks for visiting :)
