So what color did I choose? I chose PURPLE!
Specifically Perfect Plum.
I am not a big fan of purple and I rarely use it as a focal point. I didn’t even have any full sheets of Perfect Plum or Elegant Eggplant to make a card base! But, I can tell you I love the outcome and I am so glad I played around with them!!
I did the “smoosh” technique for the background. Not sure if that’s the official term, but that’s what I call it. I took a piece of Window Sheet and dropped some Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant ink in the center. I spritzed a little water and then tilted it side to side to get the colors to move around. Then, I laid my Shimmery White cardstock down on the puddle and lifted up.
Next, I flicked some water drops on it and the dabbed it with a paper towel. Once it was dry, I embossed the images from Project Life Memories in the Making in White Embossing Powder. To make the front image, I stamped the same circle on Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder cardsotck. I fussy cut them and added them with Dimensionals. The sentiment is from Suite Sayings.
And I even got fancy on the inside!
So, I think I kind of like purple now… What do you think?
Thanks for hopping along this month. I hope you have been inspired to create with a color you’ve been neglecting.
