Look at all of these gorgeous shades of Purple. It can be a vibrant color or a very soft one. The choice is yours. Today's card started out as one that I was making for fun. I had some new stamps and really wanted to try them out. As soon as I picked up my colors to start, I remember seeing somethings about a purple challenge. Sure enought, it was The Double D Challenge this week.
Here is my card
The stamp set that I used is the rather new one from Gina K designs. I finally got it as it was out of stock. Thanks Donna Phelan, for letting me know that it was back in. Quick as a rabbit, I ordered it and now I can play with it. I love hydrangeas, they remind me of my grandmother's garden. Hers here pink, but I love the purple ones as well. So I just stamped the flower down the water color card stock, randomly with white EP. Then colored with with my Distressed Markers in Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord. Using a water brush, blended them in. The layer of purple paper was been stamped with the same technique using white EP with a linen like stamp from Stamp in Up. The die cut border is from Penny Black and is called Border Edges.
I added the little tag and sentiment from the same stamp set and a few sequins from my stash.
That is it for me today. It is terribly hot here today. Heat index of 105 with the humidity. One would think that I would be staying in and crafting, but no, I am not. I will be picking up the grand kids and going to a friends pool today. I think a good day for it. Friday, I will be painting my bathroom. Not really the kind of coloring that I like to do, but it has to be done.
Thanks so much for your comments, I surely do appreciate them.
