Purple Lavender for Libbie

Today's CAS Challenge over on Splitcoast is "A Purple Birthday Celebration".  This was a good opportunity to get a birthday card made ahead of time for a friend who loves purple.

I started by sponging through a stencil with two shades of pale purple ink. Then inked up the lavender stamp with a dark purple and a green ink. I sponged a bit of blue around the top and edges, and went over the stamped flowers with clear Wink of Stella.

I had no cs that matched the purple ink so rubbed the dark purple ink over a scrap of cs and die cut my sentiment.

I used a Nesties rectangle to emboss a rectangle on the bordering white cs to frame the image.

Stamps: Impression Obsession Lavender stamp
Paper: white cs
Paper Size: A2
Ink: Distress Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord, Tumbled Glass, Bundled Sage, Shaded Lilac
Accessories: Memory Box stencil, Nesties rectangle die, Dee's Distincively birthday die, clear Wink of Stella, foam tape


  1. I love lavender and this card is so pretty! Love the frame too!
