Predominantly Purple ,,,,

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all enjoying the weekend and managing to get a little crafty time :-)

When I saw the theme on the Less Is More Challenge I thought I would join in ,, I love purple ! :-) This has photographed quite pale, the purple shades are darker much more vibrant IRL, will try to take a better piccy tomorrow.



I have only used this fab Collage Background stamp from Hero Arts once before and it is about time it had another inking, unfortunately I had taped it all down before I remembered it also comes with an embossing folder and I could/should have embossed it !

I stamped using versafine ink and embossed with clear EP. I then used various purple shades of distress inks and sprayed with diamond glimmer mist ,, it looks lovely and shimmery IRL. I layered with black card and more paper inked with the distress inks. I added a ribbon and ribbon slider from The Ribbon Girl to finish :-)

I hope this is CAS enough for the challenge ,,,, please leave me a comment so I know you popped by Smile xx
