The Colour Purple – Remarkable You from Stampin’ Up!

The Colour Purple – Remarkable You from Stampin’ Up!

I’m sneaking in with a late post again today! I just don’t know where the day went. It seemed I had a never ending list of things to do and just didn’t manage to get to the part that said Blog Post! Anyway I’ve made it and I’m sharing my entry into the Less is More Colour Challenge which is the colour purple and I’m using Remarkable You from Stampin’ Up!

Remarkable You from Stampin' Up! Tracy May LIM #279 Colour - Purple_00001

I used Elegant Eggplant, which is a deep purple,  for all the stamping including the sentiment but it looks almost black in the photograph as does the strip of Elegant Eggplant down the left hand side!

I spritzed the inked stamp with water before stamping onto watercolour paper. I then “water coloured” the flower with my clear Wink of Stella pen. Once the flower was dry I picked up some watered down Elegant Eggplant ink and created the spatters. You can see the wink of stella splatters that were created once all the ink had come off the brush tip!

Once all the splatters were dry, I stamped the sentiment from Thankful Thoughts and mounted the card onto a strip of Elegant Eggplant and then onto a Whisper White card base. I decided not to go for the usual border or card stock all the way round, but opted for a wider strip just on one side. I quite like the effect. What you think?

Do pop over to the Less is More challenge and take a look. I have been blown away by some of the amazing creations submitted. I’ve popped by and commented on a few! I just wish I had to time to visit everyone!!!
