Today's Clear Dollar Stamps Color Challenge over on PCP is to make a monochromatic card, and a further challenge was to use purple. We could use as many shades of our color as we wanted, and white for a neutral.
I don't honestly have a lot of purple ink! I ended up pulling out the really retired (like 07???)"In color" from SU!... Vintage Violet. I still had the ink, ribbon and card stock, so that worked for me! I also found this lavender cs in my stash, sorry I don't know where it came from. I rarely use purple!
I used two Clear Dollar Stamp Sets here. The Sentiment is from "In God's Hands", and the flowers and Hummingbird are the March 2009 Set "Sweet Hummingbird". I stamped the sentiment in Vintage Violet and cut out the oval with my Nesties. I matted that in lavender and then a scalloped Vintage Violet layer. I matted my card the same way, and the white layer I ran through the cuttlebug for some texture. My flowers and hummer are first stamped in VersaMark, then Vintage Violet, and Clear Heat Embossed. I then cut out one flower / bird image and three more flowers from which I cut the hummer. I punched some Martha Stewart Greenery Punches from the lavender, and popped up my flowers on dimensionals.
I love these Clear Dollar Stamps! There are so many great Scriptures, images and great sentiments! They really stamp well too... make great impressions!
Thanks for taking a peek! Sorry the photo is dark, but it's dark here and going to be tomorrow... so I just did what I could with my lamp. Have a great weekend!
