Less is More - Week 49 - Colour - Purple
This week the LIMettes have been asked to base their card around a colour theme which is:
On some white card I have stamped the Vogue Silhouette (Stamps Happen) using Dusty Concorde DI. I then stamped the same image onto acetate using Royal Purple Stazon in. I drew around the outline and on the shadows of the dress with a Quickie Glue pen, waited for it to dry, and then used purple foil to add more colour. I then cut the acetate out and used a purple brad to attach it to the original stamped image. I matted this onto some purple mirri card. The sentiment is from Hobby Arts and I stamped it in the Dusty Concorde again and clear embossed it. It was then die cut using a labels die and mounted onto purple mirri. This was very difficult to photograph as the purple seems almost to turn black but I've taken the front view and a side view so you can see the acetate overlay.
