Less Purple the Better

Hi folks!

Purple. Definitely not my favourite hue to craft with. But I'm always up for a challenge and when I saw the 'purple' theme over at Less is More, I had to combine it with Time Out's whopping 100th challenge as it's Sandie's favourite colour:

I created a purple burst of colour using Ken Oliver's Color burst powder on some watercolour paper, then masked a few embossed Altenew Hennah Blooms. A WMS sentiment finished it all off!

Thanks for calling by!

  1. Deliciously artsy, Claire ... crisp white, a splash of vibrant colour (which Sandie will love!), eye catching impact ... it's fabulous! Always happy to have you playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)

  2. Oooh ! This is absolutely gorgeous Claire ! Love how the your purple Colour burst explodes on the Watercolour paper and makes a subtil gradient ! Really stunning ! Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at Less is More !

  3. Its so funny, its not a colour I use much on my cards either but as soon as I saw this I thought of Sandie too!! Its such a fabulous CAS design, using one of my favourite stamps from Altenew (and oldie but a goodie). And that purple just pops surrounded by all that white. So wonderful to see you at TIME OUT!!

  4. Considering you don't like working with purple .. this is FAB-u-LOUS!


  5. Stunning!!! These are one of my favorite flower stamps and they go really well with the design you chose -what a creative, fun idea! I love the artistic feel of your card. Thanks for taking TIME OUT and joining our 100th challenge + thanks for joining us at Less Is More as well!

  6. Gorgeous! Your use of Color Burst is amazing. I struggle with powder inks. Love this. Thank you for joining us at Less is More.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - they really make my day!
