Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations. My DT contribution for today features another purple card ....

... working with two of their most recent additions to the STAMPlorations Shop, the ARTplorations Stencil: A Bloom And Three Buds and one of their new sets, Faith Expressions with a little help from one of my favourites Mixed Media Elements.

I sponged my background using Wilted Violet Distress Ink, stamped the script into the still damp background for a faded look and lightly spritzed with water. Once dry, I stenciled my flower using paste, sprinkled with Enchanted Gold embossing powder and heat set. I then stamped my sentiment using my MISTI in Elegant Eggplant and added a border with my gold leaf pen to finish.

I am linking up with:
The Hop To Stop - raising awareness about Domestic Violence, needs purple cards Hop_to_Stop_2016

Please help turning Blogland purple. Here is another look at my card ....

That's it from me for today. Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to see the wonderful projects my teamies made and to leave a comment there for your entry into their monthly prize draw.

Have a lovely day!
