Now it's time for Pretty in Purple

I mentioned earlier this week I had made several backgrounds using Oxide inks and various distress inks and here's another one, you can see the first one HERE. I sponged on some Wilted Violet, then added more ink through this cool Hero Arts stencil (Crossing Waves); then I moved the stencil just slightly and added Steel Grey ink from MFT Stamps. Once dry, I spritzed with water, glimmer mist, added some splatters of Hero Arts Unicorn mist and black enamel accents (watered down).

Much like the Pretty in Pink card, I colored this gorgeous Stampendous Fresh Bloom with purple copics adding some white dots for accents. I again die cut and stamped the leaves with SSS Floral Shapes, embossed another sentiment from MFT's Doodle Bloom card set along with the word frame die.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you are having a great HUMP day!
