Atlantic Hearts Sketch 152 - Purple Blooms

Once again, I love the sketch at Atlantic Hearts this week! As soon as I saw it, I knew the La Belle Vie papers were perfect for this sketch. Something black and white with one added colour was what I had in mind. 

The Wavy Blooms stamp set was perfect for the flowers - I chose to emboss them with pigment ink so the ink wouldn't run when I coloured them. I used two shades of purple and the blending ShinHan marker to colour the flowers and I am happy with how they turned out.

  2. Alyson,

    I hope your birthday was wonderful and the coming year will be special for you. Special wishes just for you!

    I love your card for the AHSC challenge this week. I know I can say that to a DT member who will know I'm not looking for a vote! The purple flowers with the black is such an elegant combination and any recipient would be thrilled to received it. I may have to CASE this card!

  3. Love how elegant this card looks!

  4. Just gorgeous, Alyson. That black paper is so CLASSY! I adore the way you positioned, "accessorized" and coloured the flowers, too. TYFS. ~Ali (AHSC Design Team)
