Monochromatic Shades of Purple with Summer Silhouettes

Hi Stampers! 

I had a chance to play around in my craft room this evening and decided to create a 10 Minute Mixed Media card for the As You See It #077 Speed Stamping "Shades of Purple" Challenge and combined it with the Splitcoaststampers MIX104 MonochromaticChallenge.

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time visit the above sites!  Great Design Teams and wonderful inspiration from both galleries!

To create this 10 Minute (actually 9:58 min) CAS card:

Ink the Summer Silhouettes leaves using Perfect Plum Classic and stamp onto a piece of retired Orchid Opulence cardstock.  

Add the stem and flower head images using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.

Stamp the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with Perfect Plum Classic Ink, stamp off and stamp over the images.

Add the Blackberry Bliss Washi Tape (from the retired Colour Me Autumn Washi Tape Collection) and ink the retired En Francais background stamp with Perfect Plum Classic Ink.  

Stamp off the background image and place the panel face down onto the stamp and “finger stamp” the script background  around the edges onto the panel.

Trim the panel and emboss the lower part of the card only using the Big Shot™ with the Zig Zag Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.

On your craft mat, add some Titanium White Acrylic Paint using a liner brush to to the flower tops.  Dilute the paint with water and a wider brush to add a light wash over the background of the stems, washi tape and embossing at the bottom.

Add a few more strips of the same Washi Tape and mount onto a piece of Whisper White Textured cardstock.

Trim and mount the entire panel onto the Blackberry Bliss card base.

I was running out of time so I did not add the sentiment yet (but can add one later :-))

Quick and easy- love the fact that it was completed in under 10 minutes!

Stunningly beautiful! Looks like you spent a lot more than ten minutes on it! The background stamp is wonderful - a shame it is retired.
