Monochromatic Magic with MFT

Hello Everyone,

I am back with the next card for MFT Camp Create Day 4: Monochromatic look.

I love purple, but on its own I rarely use it. I wanted to challenge myself and make a full purple card. Here it is:

I started with stamping the Bold Diagonal BG stamp on Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed it with White Satin Pearl embossing powder from Hero Arts. I love the delicate look it has embossed on white, would be perfect for a wedding card too. But I wanted purple this time so I applied Milled Lavender Distress ink on it.

I had a left over piece of cardstock from my previous card with four You cut out from it. I used it as a stencil by adhering it temporarily to my embossed panel. I sponged Wilted Violet distress ink on the words.

I cut the panel down a bit and added a purple foil mat (only 2 thin strips to the sides to save on the specialty paper) and adhered it to a lavender cardstock piece. I chose a royal purple cardstock strip to hold the rest of the sentiment from the You stamp and heat embossed a leftover stitched flower (from Day 1) with the same embossing powder.

A purple matte enamel dot from Doodlebug finished it off. I love how it turned out and I see myself making more cards like this for example with a gradient look or rainbow colours. Endless options, so fun!

I also decorated the inside a bit with the leftover piece from the background.

I will upload this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge too, where it is all about adding a sentiment.

Hope you got inspired and will check back later today for another card idea.

Have a lovely day,
