Purple and Yellow

Hello,

Make My Monday challenge for this week is to use purple and yellow.
Supplies:  White, yellow and purple card, Blockheads image, PTI sentiment, VersaColor.

I have admired this technique on numerous cards.  First I tried swiping ink pads across the card.  It looked easy and it sounded easy but...  So then I used a brayer.  I am happy with the result but definitely need practise.  It was fun to make.

The card is also for the following challenges -
Mema's Crafts - July Challenge ~ Anything Goes
Make it Monday - Anything Goes.

Goodnight and than you for dropping in

  8. Hi Skye- thanks for the comment you left on my blog today. The stamp I used was a solid flower petal, I think from the Stamps of Life butterfly or Dragonfly set. (Even if it wasn't exactly that stamp, it would work if you used something shaped like that). Pretty card with a tricky colour combination here! Good job!

  10. And I am admiring your ability to pull this technique off. I would never have thought of using these colours for a sympathy card and stand thoroughly corrected. Well done you. Love it. Hugs, Buttons x
