Purple-licious


Hello! Today’s card was inspired by this week's Cheery Lynn Designs challenge, purple. As many of you, I love the color purple but struggle when it comes to using it in a color palette on a layout or card.
I cut the base of my card from dark purple using the largest of the Scalloped Square Stackers set. Cutting my next layer from the Classic Square Silver Stackers, I opted to add some texture using the Daisy Garden Embossing Plate. I love the elegance and size of the Kiwi Doily, perfect for centering on cards! Resting in the center is a Small Exotic Butterfly #2.
Can you believe the flowers and leaves were all cut with white cardstock? In the center of my bouquet is the Large Rose. I brushed each of the petals with LuminArt paints, then embossed each petal before assembling. Nestled on each side of the rose is the Darling Daisies. Each flower consists of 6 layers, two layers of each size petal. I lightly brushed the petals with Shimmerz Paints, then assembled, staggering each layer of petals as I went. Using Ranger Distress inks, I colored leaves from Small Dimensional Leaves #2 and Stacker Flower #1 Leaf and tucked them in around the flowers, finishing off with a couple of Olive Branches.
There is still time to enter this weeks challenge for your chance to win a $20 shopping spree!
It’s that time again! Cheery Lynn Designs is releasing more new dies!!! New doilies, flowers, and several new suprises! Coming on May 15th!
