More Purple

Greetings - yes, I did two purple cards yesterday!!  

This one came together quite quickly, and the most difficult part was lining up the stencil to extend it to the edge of the card.  Again it is a Layers of Color art stencil, this is named Brocade, and I stenciled it with violet ink on the purple base.
I then cut the layers, and sponged the violet ink around the edge of the larger white layer after embossing it, and all over the small one, before I removed the die.
The image is again from Layers of Color, from the Royal Birds set, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with chalks and a blender pen, and then I added some Kindy Glitz to the wings of the bird for some sparkle.
I assembled the card adding a wee ribbon and bow to soften the whole, and decided that I would use a scripture reference (Isaiah 40:31) in the small panel rather than a greeting.

So in just on an hour I had another card made, and I was feeling very pleased with myself - today was another story altogether, as I mowed lawns and generally stayed out of the studio!   Tomorrow, well who knows what it will bring. :-)

Thank you for calling in - I love it when you leave comments - they are really appreciated.

May you day be blessed.

Your image is from one of favourite LOC sets and I love the shimmer you have added to the wings - it adds such a pretty touch!
