Hey there!! Back with another post for today... this time for the first Less is More challenge of the new year and as my title would suggest we are to use purple on our project. Ahh...the color purple. While I'm not a huge fan of purple in general... I do like to use it from time to time when I'm making cards. I especially like deep rich purples for cardmaking. Today I used two purple inks, PTI's Plum Pudding and Close to My Heart's Pansy Purple, and a purple cardstock, PTI's Royal Velvet for my card. The stamps are all from Hero Arts (Carte Postal, Antique Flowers & Butterflies & Luscious Frames).
There isn't a ton of white (or in the case of this card... cream) space, but hopefully there is enough to satisfy Chrissie and Mandi. I stamped the main image several times on the cream cardstock piece using Plum Pudding ink and then one time on scrap cream cardstock using Pansy Purple. The Pansy Purple image was trimmed out and adhered as you see. The "hello" was stamped in black ink to make it stand out more and then a little butterfly was stamped in Plum Pudding, trimmed out and adhered to the card. A few purple rhinestones finished off the card.
