A warm (and hopefully, sunny) welcome to you as you join us for this week's Just Us Girls Challenge #437~Colour Week. Of late, I've been crushing over Ultra Violet, the Pantone Colour of the Year 2018. Described as "complex and contemplative," mysterious and intriguing, symbolic of "unconventionality" and "artistic brilliance", how can one not be tempted to play with this amazing colour and "push boundaries through creative outlets"? Purple? Yes please!
If you've come from - or are heading to - the challenge blog, you'll see an array of fabulous cards from our April Guest Designer, Karren Johnson, and my talented teammates: Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa, Maria.
Two cards to share today. Mine features the oh-so-lovely, delicate Mandala stencil from Studio Katia. Three shades of purple distress inks, a sentiment from Label Messages (love that this set has matching dies!) and...done! Simple and, in my view, so pretty....love that the stencil did all the hard work!
My just-turned-8-year-old niece is joining me again as a Guest Designer, with a card she made when visiting us over Easter. Studio Katia for her, too: You're Ranunculus stamps and die; Label Messages,STAMPlorations Dragonfly Waltz stencil. Outside of the actual heat embossing, she did this alllll on her own! LOVE her bright purple card!
Turning the stage over to you!
Looking forward to seeing your PROMINENTLY PURPLE creations in the gallery!
Thank you for dropping by!
