More Purple!

I've already played along in the PURPLE challenges at FLOURISHES and CASOLOGY, but I thought I'd give it one more kick at the can & combine them both with the love challenge at The Pink Elephant. 

Supplies: stamps from Flourishes; Versamark & Dusty Concord distress ink; clear embossing powder; paper from Basic Grey; classic small oval Nesties; clear dew drops from Dollarama; glimmer mists in Cherub Pink, Blue Skies, and Lilac Chalkboard



To make it easier to paint with the glimmer mists, I embossed the heart & sentiment first, and then dabbed in the different colours of mist. I only have one colour of purple mist (the horror) and it's not very vibrant, so I added in the other two colours to give some variation.

I've had lots of card mojo the last week or so, so I have LOTS to share in the next bit - not even all purple!
xoxo,
Jessi

I have no luck finding bling of any kind at $ama... they must send it all to NS. :D The dewdrops are perfect to frame this soft purple image -- what a pretty card! (P.S. You have one more purple mist than me... must correct that oversight.)

Jessi, this is SO pretty! Those dew drops look amazing around the die cut, and I just love the way you colored in the image. Nice dp, too. The combination of the strip of dp behind the oval and dew drops makes it look like you've actually stamped the image on the card base and made a die cut in the strip. Very cool! Thanks so much for playing along with us in this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge!
