Another sample form my Hochanda shows last week and I thought you might like a sail along the purple wave! I know this is a dark card for me but its nice to mix things up sometimes lol! I started this one with a panel cut with the rose garden triplet insert die into amethyst foundation card. I matched the die against the previous cut to give me a larger panel of the beautiful rose trellis. This is hopefully more evident in the below picture.
Next I made a frame using the double pierced rectangles in rich plum using three of the dies to emboss the frame and 2 to cut it to give the stunning dotted pattern over the frame. I mounted this over a piece of card which I shaded using colour cloud blending inks.
Next I took a long piece of amethyst foundation card and cut the bottom in a wave using the centre and one edge die form the lynx mini Gemini die. I used cosmic pearl PVA glue to add pearl dots to the ends of the waves in the die. I mounted this over a piece of rich plum cut to the same size as the original piece.
I then cut a selection of flowers from the string flowers set and moulded them to make the petals pop out. I added a pearl centre into each one and arranged these over the frame with a seam binding bow.
Finally I added a pierced flag die cut stamped with forever, from my tulip elements clear stamp set cut form the same colour clouded background piece.
