Three Purple Flowers

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 449! 

I chose Lagoon and Mint (plus black and white) as my two colours in addition to the shades of purple .

The background was stencilled using a set of layering stencils. I stamped the flowers and leaves, coloured them and fussy cut each of them. The leaves were coloured in both Lagoon and Mint plus the inside section of each flower was coloured in Mint. I arranged the leaves and flowers in the upper corner and adhered them with thin foam tape and regular foam tape. The lines on the flowers were brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush. 

The sentiment was stamped and mounted on Wisteria cardstock. I added a few turquoise gems to finish off my card.
