Color Dare #353 ~ Purples!

Our Color My Heart Color Dare Design Team is challenging you with PURPLES this week! You may use any purples you like plus 2 neutral colors with Black and White being free. You may make any paper craft you like. 

I love how this card turned out! I'm sure it would be pretty in other colors, too, but love the purple. I first white embossed the image then gave it an ink wash. I used our wide water brush, picked up ink from the lid of the stamp pad and brushed it over the image. After brushing I wiped with a paper towel to take any ink off the white embossing. This bit of color on the image makes the detail stand out more on the light cardstock. The hearts were cut using out Thin Cut dies and I added a couple white Dots to finish it off.

  1. Love your combination of purples and the embossed doily is the way you did your sentiment on the stitched hearts...beautiful card.

  2. So pretty, Michelle! The soft hues of purple with the white embossing are fabulous.

  3. This is so pretty - the embossed image stands out perfectly against the darker hearts. I think you’re right that this would look great in a rainbow of colours! Love what you did :)

  4. Great use of that stunning heart card. The tones of purples you've used are right on!
