#551 – In Purple

PE: Winner at Cupcake Inspirations!!

Cupcake Inspirations - Sweet Six

Hello! I am back with another card. A simple to make, but packing a punch card. πŸ˜‰


I just picked a watercolor panel, colored it with two tones of purple and then a bit of black at the top. Once it was partially dry, I sprinkled a few drops of water, to get small gaps where I could add stars. Once the panel was dry, I stamped the trees (from an alcohol inks kit I brought recently) and the sentiment from JustRite Bokeh Time and embossed it in gold. I also added dots for the stars using embossing pen, which too, I embossed in gold. I then added a second set of trees, behind the gold embossed ones using Black Soot distress ink.


I am submitting this card to the following challenges –

  3. OH I love these colors, actually I shared a video on YouTube yesterday, showing the starry background sponging. Though I think yours is spectacular in every way! Ashwini watch it and give your critic on it, you are one of the people I really look forward to hear from πŸ™‚ the youtube channel name is same as my blog name – Thank you.

  5. Ashwini, great card! Purple and gold is one of my favourite combinations, love gold sentiment on top and golden trees at the borrom. That creates a complete look and very elegant layout. Thank you so much for sharing your card with us at STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge.
