A Passion for Purple

Good Morning Crafters

As from today we will be doing things a differently on the blog.

The design team will be posting tutorials, hints and tips, and even a video or two will be making an appearance.  We hope that you enjoy the new features and gain lots of inspiration.

Today it is Christine's turn to provide some inspiration!

Step by Step

1.Using Imagination craft Silkies and the Ivy Stencil, stipple the paint through the stencil onto white card stock.

2.When dry, spread Amethyst Sparkle medium through the stencil at a different angle and let it dry. Mount this onto Black and then Silver cardstock.

3. Spread “ Silkies”  paint onto a glass craft mat and ink up the Daisy stamp 4 times  by pressing the stamp into the paint. When dry  point the petals on 3 of the images using scissors. Paint these with the Silkies paint. Use 2 colours for a vibrant effect – I used a Pink Base colour then added shading with purple.

 4.Add these flowers to your card bending the petals upwards (this enables the  Silkies paint to catch the light). Cut one or two flowers in half to add behind the main flower on the left.  Add hand cut black leaves behind the flowers.  Place another flower top right.  Colour in the flower centres with black pen.
5.  Using the Butterly  Blossom Stencil spread Royal Purple Sparkle Medium onto Vellum and cut out theButterfly  when dry.  Add this to the right hand side of the card.Add some lace onto your card. (Ink the lace with a purple inkpad to match the card)

6. Ink up a  “Best Wishes” stamp with Silkies paint and add to the top middle of the card  to finish.
