Color Hues #32 - Red & Purple

 Hello friends!  I saw the recent Color Hues challenge of red and purple and thought it was a great color combination, so I thought I'd play along.

This was my second try at these colors.  I'll share the first one below.  I created the floral swag using a Pink Fresh stencil/stamp/die set.  I used two inks for the flowers and only one ink for the leaves.  After stenciling, I stamped the outline in black ink, then die cut it.  The white panel was impressed with a piercing plate (hard to see).  I added the purple panel die cut with a stitched rectangle and a silver foiled sentiment (it looks black, but it's silver).  I added silver crystals to finish it off.  

This was my first attempt that I was not very crazy about.  I sponged red and purple inks on a white panel then impressed it with a heart pierced die.  I die cut the coordinating panel from white and added it over it.  The globe was die cut from silver cardstock and again from red so that I could add the heart.  I adhered that to a stitched rectangle and embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder.  I added silver pearls to that panel.  This card was ok, but not my favorite!

Thanks for stopping by!

Lisa, I just recently got that Choose Hope set from Pink Fresh and made two cards with it! My cards look flat compared to yours! I should have come back with the outline in black. Not sure why I didn't think of it. It is gorgeous! As for your second card...I love it too! The background looks fabulous! Thanks for playing along at Color Hues, I was tickled to see you in the gallery! Hugs!
