The Less is More challenge is....
the first week of the month and a colour challenge
this time we want to see
And purple was a good choice for this Sale-a-bration set. It's called Fresh Vintage and it will be free (with a $50.00 Stampin' Up! purchase) from January 24 - March 31.
I used my SU Markers (Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Lucky Limeade) to ink the stamp, huffed and stamped on Whisper White. The image was cut with my Bigshot and the Ovals die. The larger oval was cut with a non SU product.
I used my Simply Scored to do a lattice background. If you don't have this wonderful tool, you can use your Fiskars Papercutter.
The sentiment is from Loving Thoughts. It's a set in the new Occasions Mini catalog and there are 11 beautifully scripted sentiments. I think I'll be using this set a lot!
If you're still with me, here are a couple more purple cards that I did using the Medallion background stamp that I've had for a couple of years and haven't used. I think it's about time I dusted it off, don't you?

Do you remember that book, The Color Purple? They made it into a movie too. It's one of my favorites.
This is a long post, but these days I never know when I can post again. I hope to get back to daily posts, but my good intentions seem to fall flat as the week wears on.
I'm so glad you stopped by. Hope you check back soon.
