Purple and Teal Card

Here is a card for the purple and teal sketch challenge for the Critter sketch challenge blog # 43.

Teal was a very difficult colour to find, I can tell you. In the end I had to resort to My Craft Studio and just try and concoct the correct colour so I hope that I am not too far off!

The base card is a dark purple 6" x 6" card. This was layered with Teal paper and a gorgeous lilac textured card. The stripe across the middle is more of the dark purple card with a 6mm lilac ribbon.

The image is from an Elusive Images Paisley stamp which I think is absolutely gorgeous. It was stamped with Versamark and embossed with Obsidian Teal Moonglow embossing powder.

The flowers were painted with Purple Twinkling H2Os and the leaves with Teal H20s. Therefore I managed to get at least two teals into the card. The image was cut out with an oval Nestability. The edges of this were tinted with Dusty Concord Distress ink. The image was mounted onto a Purple Mirror card scalloped oval. This assemble was mounted onto the base card.

A bow was tied, from the same ribbon as used on the strip across the card, and secured in the top right hand corner as a finishing touch.
