Fantasy Stampers - The Colour Purple

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you have had a good and are ready for a fab weekend. I have a busy one ahead part of the time we will be helping our daughter to move. She will be moving nearer to her work which make sense to save on travel expenses.

There is a new challenge starting today on the Fantasy Stampers Challenge Blog the theme is The Colour Purple which also happens to be my favourite colour.

My friend's birthday is soon so I made this card for her as her favourite colour is purple too.  To create the background I used the Clarity Stamp Heart Rose. It was stamped with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with a clear powder and then inked over with two shades of Distress Ink. 

The rose was created with the My Paper Stash 3D Rose stamp set. I stamped the set with Plum Archival ink and then I cut out the shapes with my ScanNcut I could never have cut the leaves like that by hand. Then I used Distress Ink to paint the rose with a watercolour brush. The layers were put together with gel glue. 

In the top corner I added the large butterfly by Visible Image.

I hope my friend likes this card I know she will like the colour. 

Don't forget the challenge at Fantasy Stampers and if you check back tomorrow the winners of the last challenge will be announced. 

Have a great weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
