This is my card for today's Color Challenge over on SCS. I don't always do this challenge because I don't always have the colors they are requesting ... but, monochromatic, I can do! Of course since purple IS my favorite color ... that was my choice for today's card.
First I selected Elegant Eggplant as my base card then I started looking to use up some of the scraps I had laying around . I found this designer paper panel (don't know off hand who makes it) ... then I looked through my stack of negative Nesties panels and found this orchid opulence piece. It was a little large so I backed it with a scrap of lovely lilac, cut out a smaller oval of white with my Nesties (that gave me yet another negative to add to my stack) to use as the backing for my main image. The orchid panel looked a bit plain so I did some paper piercing and used these cool (and cheap) Darice pearl brads I found on sale at Pat Catans.
The main image hydrangea is a stamp by Anna Griffin - All Night Media. I stamped it on vellum using Versafine black then embossed it with clear ep. I colored the BACK side using my prisma pencils, cut it out with my trusty swivel craft knife and ta dah ... done! Oh yea, as an after thought, I added the little butterfly punched using the Martha Stewart punch.
What do you think??? Thanks for stopping by!!
