Just Us Girls #437 - Color Week

Hey friends!  How are you on the color purple?  It's not my favorite, but I do like a challenge.  It's color week at Just Us Girls and Carol has chosen to prominently use purple on your card.

I must say I'm loving the purple!  I started with another stamp set I've had for a while that I haven't used.  This is a layering marble set from Waffle Flower and I could have done a better job with it had I watched their video tutorial.  But I do like the outcome mostly.  After stamping a much larger piece of cardstock, I die cut it with a stitched rectangle die.  I die cut another panel in an orchid card stock to mat it on.  Then I stamped the flower and leaves in black.  I didn't want to add any other colors and I thought coloring it in purple would be too much (at least for me!).  I did color the middle of the flower with a light purple copic.  Then I die cut the sentiment four times from black card stock and stacked them.  That and the center of the flower received some shimmer!  And of course to finish it off, I added some purple crystals (there they are again!).
I'm also entering this in the Creative with Stamps challenge.

I love your marbled background Lisa. I bought that stamp set and it certainly isn't any easy one. Looks gorgeous in purple. I like how you left your flower neutral with just a touch of colour in the centre. Such a pretty card.

That marbled background is stunning! Love the black and white flower with the purple center and black sentiment against that gorgeous marble.

I never thought of using purple or any other bright color for the marble, Lisa, but it looks fantastic. You can be sure I'll be trying it. I also have that flower stamp on my desk to try a technique with but I love that you did it in black and white. It's so stunning with the purple.

Clever you to use the marble image as your background (I have this set and even though I watched the video, still don't get it right!) and such a pretty canvas for your lovely flower and hello! The black: bold and dramatic! LOVE this!

Macimbalo said...

Such a gorgeous background - love that marble look! Yours is so pretty in purple too! And I love how you kept the other elements black and white - STUNNING!
