Less is More Colour Challenge

Happy New Year everyone.

Here I am with my first challenge entry for 2012 & a promise to myself to enter more challenges this year & blog more frequently.

So the challenge at Less Is More this week is colour - Predominantly Purple. Now purple, along with it's variations, is one of my favourite colours - how was I going to use it?  Having not joined in challenges much recently I found that the creative part of my mind was a bit slow kicking in. Here is the card -

Try as hard as I could I couldn't get the colour right in my photo this looks more blue.  Deep purple card with a Crafty Individuals image stamped on to white card with a Palette ink pad called Victoria Lilac.  Then layered onto silver paper.  The word I stamped in Versamark onto white card, then embossed with matt clear EP, & using a shaving style brush & the Palette ink pad coloured it to match the main image.  A quick brush over with a tissue let the word pop out.  This I then layered onto silver paper to match the image - ran a length of purple of ribbon through the tag & across the top of the card.  I just couldn't resist the little bit of bling.

Thank you for popping in.

I have trouble photographing a proper purple, mine too looks blue!
Purple conjures up ;dream' mystical for me, so your card hits the nail on the head

Thank you so much
