Sunday Stamper Ultraviolet

Sunday Stamper over at Ink On My Fingers is to use Violet/Purple.  I got inspiration from Hels's programmes on Create and Craft this week.  Hels used clear Texture Paste and coloured Distress Glitter whereas I used white for both as that is what I had.



The base card is deep purple and Distress Inks used for the background are Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves and Peacock Feathers.  I used dotty and flowers masks from That Special Touch and the pattern mask is The Crafters Workshop.  Soft White Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste was dragged through the mask, the mask removed then paste sprinkled with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.  'Hello' is from Hero Arts set Trees, Birds and Messages.  I loved making this card and I hope you like it too!  Thank you for visiting me and have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing.  Please visit Hel's Blog, its fabulous!  Take care. Christine xx

Love the beautiful background and the embossing paste creates such wonderful dimension.

The Accordion die will work fine in the Cuttlebug, just follow the manufacturers details for using a Bigz die in it. The base die (which has the flip bit in it) is called Album, Accordion Flip 3D and is by Karen Burniston There is another die which creates a frame and an inner frame and this is called Frame & Label, Bracket, also by Karen Burniston. It is not absolutely necessary but does give a more professional result.

Hope that helps and no you are not a pain at all! Thanks for your visit. Anne x
