We have a new challenge up on The Card Concept Blog and if you are a fan of this year's Pantone Color of the Year, then you are in luck! The new Card Concept challenge is to make a card in Monochromatic Purple! I hope you play along with us!
I used a Die~Namites Die for the background doily and painted it with two different shades of purple Silks. It looks much better irl because you can see the gorgeous shimmer of the mica in the paint. The background panel and circle behind the vellum were stamped with the sweetest little rose image from a Crafty Secrets stamp set. I think it must be retired as I cannot find it online and I picked it up for a steal at a scrapbook convention.
The white panel behind the doily is dry embossed; then I inked up the edges of the paper with Versamark ink and dragged the edges of the paper through gold embossing powder.
The sentiment is embossed in gold on vellum and a small ring of Sahara Sand cs was made to fit around the sentiment to define the vellum panel better.
The leaves and flowers were made with Heartfelt Creations dies.
The dry embossing and gold heat embossing, layers, handmade flowers, pearls and vellum all come together as a classy and elegant card. What style do you prefer?
