Monochromatic Card

Hello, I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Todays challenge at Catch the Bug is Bingo.  I am featuring "Violet Teacup" from Bugaboo Stamps.

I chose the center vertical column, monochromatic, pearls, and Bugaboo image.  Since this image is violets, I chose to use purples.

I colored my background behind the violets with my Prismacolors in Cream.  I used a very light hand to give it a cream color instead of stark white.

The watercolor background  was created using Distress Oxide and Distress Inks in various purple hues.  I used the Nuvo Crystal Drops in Wisteria Purple  This is actually called a metallic color, but it dries and looks like little purple pearls.  I also added little dew drops around the image with Nuvo Jewel Drops in Pale Periwinkle.

I stamped the image with Versamark Ink and embossed it with Wow Gold Embossing Powder.

Other Supplies:
Strathmore Watercolor paper
Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy Stamp Set

Simon Says Frame It
Southern Girls - Anything Goes
