TCC70 Sending Peace and Strength


Hi Friends!!

It’s time for The Card Concept #70 “Purple Haze” Challenge!  Isn’t this a fun inspiration photo with all of the purple bottles and hazy finishes?  I decided to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) Mixed Media card using Power Poppy’s digital images.


If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to check out the wonderful Design Team cards at The Card Concept as well as the Splitcoaststampers challenge galleries- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Using your computer along with a printer, print out the Power Poppy digital image of Easy Breezy Coneflowers and position the sentiment from the digital set, Olive  and Oak onto white cardstock.

2). Color the floral image using watercolor pencils, alcohol and water-based markers adding shadows with a water soluble graphite pencil. 

3). Use a chevron stencil, apply light purple classic ink with a stencil brush and apply shimmer with a clear glitter pen.

4). Die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die and mount onto eggplant cardstock, mount onto the white card base.

5). Use an extra fine white paint pen to add highlights to the coneflower centers.

Stamp Sets:  Easy Breezy Coneflowers, Olive and Oak (both digital from Power Poppy)

Ink/Mediums: Printer Ink- black; Derwent® Watercolor and Graphite Water Soluble Pencils, Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. Perfect Plum Classic Ink, Extra Fine Sharpie® White Paint Pen, Spectrum Noir® Clear Glitter Pen

Paper: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant

Accessories: AquaPainter™, Chevron Stencil, MFT Stitched Rectangle Die

Thanks again for taking the time to visit!  I hope all of you have a wonderful week and you will be able to join us for the #70 “Purple Haze” Challenge at The Card Concept!
