Elegant in purple

I have two projects to show you today. This first one is for the mid sponsor for the Rabisco Challenge. Our sponsor is LeAnn’s World 101 and I got to work with Abigail.

I printed her out onto Canson C’ a Grain drawing paper and colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I drew my color inspiration from the colors used on the plaid paper that I wanted to use as my background here. Once she was colored, I cut her out with a Hero Arts oval die. I cut another oval one size bigger out of purple cardstock. I created a 5.5×5.5 inch cardbase and added a 5.5×5.5 inch purple panel to it. I then added a 5.25×5.25 inch piece of the plaid paper to my card before adhering the focal element.

I cut two strips of cardstock, one measuring 1.25×5.5inches out of blue and one measuring 1×5.5 inches out of purple. I ran the purple piece through a Spellbinders embossing folder and adhered them to the left side of my card. I also added a piece of trim from my stash and 3 flatback jewels from my stash too.

I completed the card with a sentiment from a Kaisercraft stampset stamped in Versamark ink on black cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. I cut the banner with a die from my stash and popped it onto the card with foam tape.
We would love to have you join us at the Rabisco Challenge. The theme is always Anything Goes with the addition of some form of haberdashery or notion.
