Less Is More - Purple

Hi again:) The theme at Less is More this week is purple and I thought I would try a design that I saw on chrissies blog a while ago with black stamping, white embossing and then some ink. Her card was totally stunning, and I was in awe!!! Thanks chrissie for the inspiration this week:) I always love playing with inks and embossing.

Thanks for popping in and I hope you have a great week x x

Oh my!
This is awesome. I have this stamp and love it, although it hasn't seen the light of day for a while, I think I must rectify that!
You have achieved a fabulous effect, it's a beautiful card, with delicate inking and the perfect sentiment for the image!
Thanks so much Meadie

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. I love the different purples you've combined in your panel. The variation is so subtle but so very elegant. A real beauty.
