Purple, lilic and pinks are colours I like to work with so I thought I would take part in Jay Nook's Challenge 10. The challenge is to "simply create a project inspired by this photograph, another beautiful college put together by Joy - interpret it any way you wish."
Here is my interpretation
This is also my card for the Lily Pad Cards, August Chain Card Challenge.
I then made another card using lilic.
This is my entry for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Touchy Feely.
I used a brayer to put ink (lilac) onto my cuttlebug folder and then put the cardstock in it and put it through the cuttlebug slowly several times to let the ink press into the card. It always seems to work better at one end then the other. I like this technique as it helps the embossed image to stand out more, but it usually takes a few attempts as it doesn't always work out. Even this one I am not completely happy with, but it seemed to be the best one. I then distress inked the scalloped circle in lilac and mounted it on a white circle, edging it slightly with ink and adding a stickeroo. To finish off I added ribbon for more texture and mounted it all on white card
Thanks for stopping by.
