Less is More ... Purple

 I just cannot believe how quick the days and weeks are passing this year and all without a great deal going on!  Today is the start of a new challenge at Less is More and this one is all about 'shades of purple'.

So grab your purples, have fun and join in with the challenge ... just remember we are looking for Clean and Simple (CAS) designs.

I stamped and coloured the image and then trimmed the edge of the card around the image before stamping the sentiment on the inside following the shape of the top layer.

I used:
STAMPlorations:  Sweet Kindness Stamp set
Distress Inks - Dusty Concord, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn.
Stampin Up - Gorgeous Grape

You're in for a treat this week as I've managed to create a second card:

I created a panel with yupo and alcohol ink and then die cut the wildflowers before adding them to a panel of card.  The focal image has been adhered to the card base with foam tape just to add a little dimension.  I pricked some detail into the card base as well as the focal image to tie the two together before stamping a sentiment. And that, as they say, was that!

I hope that you are all keeping well and are inspired to join in with the challenge ... need more inspiration? check out the other designers over on the blog.

Stay Safe!

  1. Two lovely cards Elaine - the second one is stunning particularly with the dark purlpe and it's silver foiling!
