Inkspirational Challenge - Purple with Grey / silver


We have a colour challenge at Inkspirational  - purple with grey or silver.

For my DT card I used a bauble stamp I got free with a magazine. I had to play around a lot to get the intensity of purple I wanted. I used several inks and some plum Twinkling H20s and I sprayed everything with water for mottled effect. Then I used silver embossing powder to emboss the stamped image. Finally, I sprayed it with glitter.

In the end I made three cards - here are the other two:


This final one is the wrong colours for Inkspirational but I enjoyed doodling strings for the baubles and as a frame.

We would love you to join us at Inkspirational  with your purple and grey project. We have a wonderful guest designer, Lynda, so do come over and take a look.

Oh, these baubles are incredibly pretty, especially the way you've showcased them! Slightly smaller, and they'd make a stunning pattern for a pair of earrings... Wonderful inspiration!

It's so inspirational to see different designs using the same stamps, a little change in design or color makes a big difference! Love this week's color scheme!

This is wonderful, Marina! Great stamp and I love that purple background. Love the silver embossed paper you used too. I think I like the first card best but I do really like the doodled frame and that. :-)

I like how you played with shades of purple. Great colors and the embossed silver looks fantastic over top. What a fun stamp. A great find to get it with a magazine!
