Purple and Brown….

Hi everyone!

This week’s Colour Throwdown challenge has a beautiful palette – light purple, dark purple, beige/off white and brown. But I liked it so much, I was kind of overwhelmed. Do you ever feel like that? I didn’t feel like any of the designs I thought of would do it justice. So I was stuck…..

Then today, a whole load of Altenew inspiration appeared in my Instagram feed and I decided to play with the Garden Treasure set in the hopes I could make it work with the combo. I think this is the first time with an Altenew layering stamp that I haven’t used different shades of the same colour! I think I quite like that beige base for the flower.

Anyway, I used Altenew inks for the flower and leaf and stuck them to a base I’d created using a Spellbinders embossing folder. The sentiment is also from Altenew. Once the card was assembled, I felt it needed a little something extra so I added a few glittery die cuts from a Simply Graphic die.

Thanks for stopping by!
