Three Purples

I made this card for my Nana's birthday. I CASEd a card from our Demonstrator Newsletter, but changed the colours. I've used Rich Razzleberry, Concord Crush and Perfect Plum. The Perfect Plum is actually a piece of the Patterns Stack, which I've stamped the Bliss flourish on, and sponged the edges. I gave the flowers their watercolour look by stamping on Shimmery White cardstock in versamark and heat embossing with White Embossing Powder. I then spritzed with water and dropped on some drops of re-inker. As the colours dry, they blend beautifully. It comes out differently every time! The Old Olive leaves were cut using the Little Leaves die and my circle was cut using the Circle Scissor tool.
Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. Gorgeous card Marelle - those flowers are magical. :)

  2. Lovely card, love purples. When I saw this in the demo mag I wanted to do it again. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. Beautiful work Marelle. Watercolouring is my favourite.
    What is the stamp set that you've used?

  4. Looks great Marelle! I did the same as you when I tried it - used Shimmery White and white embossing powder. I had some spectacular failures trying it the way the Impressions Mag described! LOL!

  5. Just beautiful Marelle, love the colours and flowers
