Not really being a purple girl, I wasn't sure how to combine two shades of purple onto one card so I got the idea to make my own DSP incorporating two of the four colors:
This card was one of those where I started with one idea and ended with something else entirely! I used the feather image from A Happy Hooray to stamp a pattern in Blackberry Bliss ink onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock. The fun hexagon sentiment is also from this set and is actually bigger than I thought. It does not fit into the Hexagon punch--it's bigger than that--but the straight sides are easy enough to hand cut. The fringe scissors--have I mentioned how I love those?--made a sort of grassy border for a big beautiful bloom from Flower Patch.
By now you probably know that these flowers have coordinating Framelits--how great is that?!--even the leaves have a framelit! The stamps are photopolymer which is great to work with and perfectly clear. The leaves were stamped off once with Mossy Meadow ink and then stamped with the vines full strength. Normally, with red rubber stamps, I stamp off onto scrap paper and then my cardstock. When I tried that with the photopolymer stamp, I either got an uneven look or it tok off too much ink. I found that stamping off on a Kleenex took off the right amount of ink and did so evenly. A little trick for you!
There's no tricks about the Design Team's eye candy this week--it's all just beautiful creations. Be sure to check out the rest of the team and then pop over to The Paper Players and join us before the challenge ends on Friday, July 18th at Noon (PST).
