With Love Purple Petals



Today I was playing with my new floral stamps from The Ton stamped and white embossed onto multimedia paper. I haven't used this before and wanted to see what it was like. Brilliant with the Zigs. The biggest problem is that its been raining solid for a few days now so the light is not good so the photos do not show the card off as well as they should but cant be helped.


I used one of the light purple's in the Zigs and just added in layers. Added a little dark yellow to the centre of the flower. Couple of different greens for the leaves and a very light wash around the flowers. Then of course I added Wink of Stella to the petals - ohhh happy dayyyyss.


Decided to add a bit of bling so added a strip of silver glitter paper on the side, three silver gems and the 'with love' sentiment and I am finished. Now to go try the gold embossed one and the silver embossed and the copic..........

Challenges :








Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

WOWZERS! This is FAN-TAS-TIC, CAS-TAS-TIC, ELE-GANT, gorgeousness and I love it. Great use of purple and superb watercolouring (in fact you might want to link up at AAA Cards where it's a watercolour fortnight). Swooning here and I now need to add those blooms to my ever extending wish list! Thanks for joining us and playing at Less is More this week. Sarah x
