We have a colour challenge this week in the form of Purple & Gold which has to be one of my favourites. I have taken a piece of plain white card to start & after giving it a good all over wipe with an anti static pad I have randomly stamped the entire piece using the Floral Flourish & Jewel Gold powder. Sponge all over using a mix of the 2 Brilliance pads. I have then stamped & embossed (using the Detail Gold powder this time) the Swirly Frame onto lilac card & one of the lovely sentiments from the Hours Fly By set both from Jane Gill into the centre. I have then simply stamped the flourish again over the lilac piece using the Versamark inkpad to give a shadowed watermark effect. All that is left to do is to cut around the frame & layer onto purple card & then onto the embossed background. I have used the inverted corner punch & added the gold Candis for a simple elegant finish.
