It has been a while since my last post – I have been away to see some of my very good friends get married at what I have to say was one of the most beautiful weddings I have been too. The bride and her family are incredibly arty and had put so much work into all those little extra touches that really make a big difference. I loved the whole event and may be borrowing some of their ideas in the future… I am sure she won’t mind!
My card today is a clean and simple card to enter The Card Concept Challenge which this week is themed “monochromatic purple”. I recently acquired this beautiful Indigo Blu stamp and knew I wanted to use it for this challenge – it is one of those ‘wow’ images.
I first masked off a section of the kraft card then blended white Colourbox ink over the area. I then used Distress Inks in Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord and blended over the top. I hadn’t let the white ink dry enough before I did this but I think this helped on the whole as the inks blended into the white and seemed to sink into the kraft. I then stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I finished the image by hand-drawing the black border – I think from a design point of view the image needed to be framed.
