Purple Makes My Heart Happy

No, I just can't help myself! This card was another one for the recent Elite cyberstamp. The challenge here was to use a colour combination from one page of the SU! Technique booklet and use it to recreate a card on another page in the booklet. Unfortunately I don't know where my heatgun is (but I do know where my towel is...), so I couldn't do emboss resist and had to settle for VersaMark resist or "ghosting". My colours are Almost Amethyst, Sage Shadow, Lavender Lace and Bashful Blue. I've stamped the large flower and swirly stamp from the Sell-a-brations set Friendship Blooms on gloss white cardstock using VersaMark then sponged Lavender Lace ink over the top. I think the Lavender ink would have gone on less blotchy if I had used sponges instead of daubers for this large an area, but you live and learn. Still quite pleased with how this came out.
