Purple Trees

Hello Everybody,

this week has flown by, it’s Sunday, and I’m hoping to look fairly well organized. First of all, thanks for all your lovely comments, they were very much appreciated.

I managed to make a card today to enter into 2 challenges at once!!!

Here it is:

purple trees

I have gone all arty on this one … and I really enjoyed it. Basically the inspiration for this card came from the challenge themes, which are …

… ‘purple’ at CASology

… ‘repetition’ at One-Layer Simplicity

As far as the purple goes, I used three shades (wisteria wonder, perfect plum and elegant eggplant by Stampin’Up!) to stamp my one-layer card. I first started by stamping squares (from Retro Modern Shapes by STAMPlorations) in the lightest colour repeating the stamping without re-inking to achieve the lighter shades. I then stamped my tree (from Tree Silhouettes by STAMPlorations) twice in plum and once in eggplant. I then inked up part of my Grid stamp (by Kaisercraft, Craft Shop Burleydam Garden Centre, Wirral, which is my local) with wisteria and stamped it just below the trees. I added some more lines by inking up parts of acrylic blocks to stamp with before stamping my stitching (from Graphic Squares by STAMPlorations) and sentiment (from Tree Silhouettes by STAMPlorations) in eggplant.

Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
