Purple and Pink
I started to make this card knowing it had to be a pinky/purple colour scheme because they are my friends favourite colours. I decided to use this B Line Design stamp and inked it up with Onyx black Versafine ink onto a piece of ivory card. I then coloured it with colour soft pencils and very carefully cut it out . I used a Die Namics die to cut the decorative oval frame from pale lilac pearlised card and stuck the image onto it. I chose a piece of purple patterned paper from my stash and cut a scalloped edge along the bottom with a memory box die. I did the same with a strip of the lilac card and layered them together.Next I took a folded A5 card and using a stamp from the Chocolate Baroque Texture Fragments set I created a background by stamping randomly, firstly with dusty concord and then picked raspberry distress Inks stamping off some of the ink onto scrap paper each time.Then I fixed the patterned panel to the card and added the oval mounted on some thin foam pads. I added a matching ribbon with a bow and then made the flower with circles of chiffon in two shades curled with a heat tool and fastened together with a brad.I didn't have a brad the right colour so I coated one with WOW Ruby Romance embossing powder. I added the flower to the card together with some silver leaves from my stash and some pearls also coloured to match. ( I used permanent markers for that ) I decided that the flower was really a bit bright so to balance it a bit I used two Memory Box dies to make the butterfly cutting the open one from card to match the oval frame and the solid one from bright patterned paper.
I am just about in time to enter this in Fashionable Stamping Challenges;Anything Floral/Handmade Flowers
