Birthday Mauve

When I was searching for a certain color of embossing powder last year the only way I found some was in a combo pack of three colors. Here I used the two shades of purple that came in the pack. Stamped the images a few times, heat set the lighter color. Stamped more images and heat set the darker purple. Sponged purple ink in centers of flowers and green ink in leaves. Sprayed the purple ink left on the glass mat with water and mopped up with small sheet of white Text Vellum that became the sentiment tag. Placed a piece of painters tape over images and sponged a light blue from an ink pad. Mounted both pieces on copy paper with edges colored with purple marker. Then layered everything on white cs base. After it was all done I decided to add the stamped and heat embossed bee in silver tinsel.

  1. Gorgeous!! Love those flowers and your mop up piece of vellum. And again, your after done addition is perfect. You can’t go wrong with purple in my book.

  2. Bonnie, thank you for entering this beautiful card into our challenge I especially like the background it just makes it all come together. The flowers and that sentiment piece are perfect too. I see a lot of vellum for sentiments, but the splatter of color on it is a perfect touch!!! Please join us again next month for our March challenge. Would love to see what you create!!!

  3. Sorry, didn’t say that right. The vellum on top of the background is what I meant. I like vellum over bright, or busy backgrounds, as you can still see them through it, but it softens it a bit.
