Well, yesterday I had a great crafty day here at my house with a great bunch of ladies. The theme was Christmas cards and some lovely creations were made by all. I can't wait to do it again, hopefully really soon.
Anyway, now to my post for today. This is my Challenge card for this week and as the title says, we are to make a card that is primarily purple. This was a struggle for me as I really wanted to stay with the Christmas theme, but I have very little Christmassy paper with purples in it. So I worked with what I had. I then made it even more difficult for myself by choosing a Santa Claus stamp, which needed to have red in it for Santa's attire. Purple and red, not my first choice of combos. Anyway, I tried it and I'm not terribly unhappy with the colours.
I used a card base of Almost Amethyst, matted some Elegant Eggplant onto it and put my Bo Bunny paper on top of that. I put another strip of Bo Bunny across the front, matted onto Elegant Eggplant, onto which I had punched a border of Snowflakes with my M.S. border punch.
I coloured my 'Miles and Maisie Claus' image with copics and doodled a little frame around it. I matted it with Almost Amethyst, then pop dotted it onto the card. I punched out a couple of M.S. Snowflakes and put red pearls in the centre, some red ribbon across the strip and punched out my 'Merry Christmas' sentiment with my small oval punch and set that onto a piece of Elegant Eggplant punched out with a larger oval punch. That's it, Bob's your uncle and I'm finished.
Now we would like to see your 'Primarily Purple' creations. Have fun, can't wait to check out your work. Be sure to go to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog and link up your card there and also, do go and check out the other Krafty Girl's creations, they are gorgeous!!
