This month's blog hop theme is: Purple

It's funny because when I was young, purple was my favourite colour and then I didn't like it for many many, many years. But I have noticed I have been using it a lot lately! So I guess its like I am a kid again.

Ok.. now that the details have been covered, here is my card for the hop:



First I took a purple piece of card stock and ran my purple/blue shades of Gelatos over it. I think there are three or four colours in there.


Then I used the background stamp from Paris Clear stamp set and some white ink to finish my background. I stamped it on the diagonal to add a little more interest since the Gelatos are running on the horizontal line. Kind of gives it some more dimension or something like that. It's one of those things that I don't know why its better, it just seems that way to me, so I did it ;)


Then I took my circle die cuts and took some parts out of my panel:



After that I folded my lighter purple card base and ran it through with an embossing folder, using a diffusion for the last circle so the lines wouldn't show up over my sentiment. The sentiment is from Vintage Technology:



And that's it! Thanks so much for visiting. Be sure to hop on to your next stop! Which should be The Aviary.

Thanks for hopping with us today!
