All things Purple











 Less is More 

'PREDOMINANTLY PURPLE'
As you can see the Less is More challenge this week is using purple and, unlike Chrissie & Mandi, I love this colour (well for crafting anyway!) For this card I have chosen Elegant Eggplant which has to be one of my all-time favourite SU colours. The stamp set used is Everything Eleanor and I stamped two of the flower stamps in Whisper White then added stems and highlights to the flowers with my white gel pen. A piece of the new Scallop Dots ribbon was placed across the card (although in hindsight I think it may have looked better without) and the sentiment panel positioned on top. For this I stamped the shape (again from Everything Eleanor) in Elegant Eggplant, which had been stamped off first, and added the sentiment from Sincere Salutations - this was then positioned onto the card with the excess on the RHS cut off. I'm not altogether happy with the finished card (when am I??) but I do like the general idea of it - maybe a bit more practise with the highlighting would be an improvement :0)
Have a good weekend, at least the weather is showing a slight improvement.
