The challenge this week at the Play Date Cafe was to create a project using to a splash of lilac/purple with black and white,
and here is this weeks sketch from Card Patterns.
I used three stamp sets to create this card. First I used Vintage Text from CHF ( too bad they went out of business) and Ornamental Beauty also from CHF for the sentiment. I then used the Classic Fabric Design stamp from Hero Arts. I like the look of text under a design, so I stamped the Vintage Text once in black and then in lavender. I stamped over the lavender text with the fabric design stamp with black Palette ink. To separate the the fabric design from the black text, I added a thin strip of black paper. I then punched out the ornate border from the same lavender text. To create the layered sentiment I began with a black lace circle cut from Spellbinder's eyelet lace die. I layered a small doily on top of that, then added the sentiment. Using lavender tulle I cut out two circles to layer underneath the Prima flower.
Thanks so much for taking the time to take a peek and let's hope we get a break from the snow!
Have a wonderful weekend,
