Purple Flowers

Welcome

I recently had a spend with a local craft importing firm, and bought some gorgeous textural Stamps by Ryn - the leaves on this card are from that set.


Another purchase was the layering set by Altnew - Bold Blossoms, and the Shades of Purple ink set.


I used three of the purple inks and black on the last, outline layer stamp.


The leaves were stamped in a bottle ink, and wee (nail) gems in purple were added for the flowers on the vine.  I have had the nail gems for years, and this is the first time I have used them.


The sentiment was inked with versamark ink, then the darkest purple ink, stamped and clear embossed.


The big die cut is from the ODBD Lavish Layers set of dies - the first time I have used this the largest one. I also stamped some of the leaves around the edge of the card base in Memento Bamboo Leaves ink to add some extra interest.

  13. An excellent choice of places to spend your $$$! Ryn's stamps are amazing (did you see the raindrops?) and of course that Altenew layered flower is gorgeous. You've done both of the stamp sets proud, and I love the muted tones of the vinery & background, to showcase the bold color of that rose. Excellent work on the layering too. The combination of the vines & flowers make a splendid composition! TFS & Hugs
