intensely purple

my (no1) daughter and her partner are here for a visit this weekend, so not much crafting going on, never mind. i was supposed to go to my lace group but we had to cancel because of the weather.
i did however find time to make a card for a colleague at work. she likes purple, but i'm not sure she likes this much purple, i hope she does.
i brought a cosmic shimmer mist in purple violet, my god is it purple, i was amazed at how purple it was. i had to change the whole idea of what type of card i was going to make, well i didn't have to but hell go with it.

here's the card

i used a mask for the background card and sprayed the cosmic shimmer over the top. i also sprayed some flowers and crunched some paper as well but didn't use it all as it was just too much purple. i added tag to break up the purple but then made that pale purple as well. chris is a yarn-a-holic so i added some fibres to the tag. the greeting is stamped with glossy accents on top.
a shimmery purple haze!!!!


  1. Now that is nice - you can NEVER have too much purple !

  2. This is very pretty Janet. The masking has worked really well, wish I could get it to work so well when I try it!

  3. Fabulous card and I am sure you colleague will love it, I know I do. Love purple with black great colour combo. Lynne xx
