Dark purple

So my last post was of a light purple card. I took that idea a step further.
This time I went with a darker purple.

I added gold foil accents and heat embossed the edges with gold glitter embossing powder.
For the top panel on the front I used texture paste and gold micro beads. 

I added foil to the back again.
I am really loving the gold and dark purple.

Light Purple Card with Roses

 I wanted to make a special card in light purple. 

 I use light purple cardstock for the card base and ran another piece through my printer and then the Minc to add silver foil. The next layer was covered in texture paste then embossing powder was added. I edged the layers in embossing powder also.

I loved the foil so much that I added another panel to the back.

Believe it or not the handmade paper roses started out as white cardstock. I inked and inked and ended up with a color so close to the purple cardstock that I guess I should have just started the roses with colored paper and saved myself some work. LOL
