Colour Purple

I haven't had the chance to play for a while  at Less is More where the current challenge #49 is colour - Predominantly Purple
Mmmmmmm although I love the colour I find it really hard to craft with so armed with a large stamp I made a CAS card using just the stamp and purple ink, added a bit of glitter for bling and a jeweled gem brad - Purple of course.....

Stamp I used is SU Medallion a very large stamp, I really don't use this stamp often enough and it gets left on the shelf , so  I am determined that I will use it much more in 2012, this said I thought it was ideal for this type of card, I used SU  elegant eggplant ink to stamp image off the page, I then stamped the middle only with versamark and added Heat and Stick powder then added SU glitter, not sure what the colour is as I bought it about 2 years ago and its not marked on tub.  This was then punched out and a jewel brad added to centre then circle was mounted with foam pads, greeting was added with same ink.
The light wasn't good today and photo has made the glitter look a different shade which is a shame as in real life the colour match is really good.  I am pleased with the result and like the little bit of bling which lifts the design.  Another Birthday card made..... I have so many Birthdays this month including mine at least I don't have to make that one!!! lol
