'Celebrate' with Me.

Time to Celebrate at Just Us Girls
It's a New Month with a New Guest Designer
Welcome to the Super Talented Julie Beech from
So happy to have you with us this month!
it's my Birth Month - hence I chose the Word 
CELEBRATE! as I am Hosting this week.

This card was made a few months ago 
for my Sister's Birthday.
I have seen so many gorgeous cards on Pinterest
with this die - MB Perky Poppy and I knew I wanted
to try it out.
I started with inking my craft mat with
Tim's Oxide Inks in Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves
on to glossy card stock. Of course I had to have purple tones.
Continued layering and drying
then buffed with paper towel and added Tim's Distress Glaze.
I first cut the poppy out with black card stock and then
again with the three different colours above
to get the ombre effect. 
Added a mat behind it in purple
then adhered to Linen card stock.
The 'Celebrate' die is from CUTplorations
cut from leftovers from the flowers.
Finished off with a few purple gems.

Pop over and see how our Guest Julie
and the Team are celebrating.
Please come join us in our Gallery
as I would love to see your 'Celebrate Cards'.
You could be my Chic of the Week and be in the running
as our Guest in November.

Thanks for popping in.
Love reading your comments!

Yes to those lovely purple tones, Ina! Gorgeous card; especially the long-and-lean format; one I've never tried (largely due to challenges in cutting my cardstock straight *grin*). I know your sister adores this, as do I!

Claire said...

Beautiful card, it's so vibrant and the colour blends look amazing layered onto white with the purple mat. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a kind comment, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness x

I thought this was alcohol ink at first glance, Ina. The colors blend so beautifully and layering the poppies was a great way to fill the tall card.
