Purple Mackintosh Panel Card (by Debbie)

Good morning. I hope the damp weather isn't affecting the crafty mojo. I tend to think it helps me concentrate more as there is less to do outside and I don't feel guilty.
I don't usually start with coloured card but love this purple and stamped the roses from the set with Versafine Black Ink and added gold Stickles to the centres. The centre flower panel is stamped with black ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I coloured only the flower with Alcohol pens as I wanted the flower to stand out. The panel was matted onto purple and black and fixed to the card with foam pads. Thanks for visiting and pop by again as the DT have lots more inspirational cards. Debbie

  4. The purple background overstamped with those gold centred roses provides a lovely foil for the boldness of the white panel - I love the way the gold rose centres echo the pale focal flower's centre too but keeping the focal flower's centre unglittered somehow draws the eye further into the latter. The black & purple matting of different widths enhances the Mackintosh linear pattern behind the flower beautifully too. A very dramatic card which exemplifies the beauty of Colour Theory…….

  9. This card really catches the eye in that lovely purple with the flower stamped background and then the slightly lighter lilac colour for the main image. The little touches of gold on the background flowers is very eye catching, and the main image layered up with purple then black makes it stand out from the background, and using foam pads further enhances the impact it makes. These new stamps with their stylised Mackintosh designs are gorgeous and just that bit different, and I am sure they will be extremely popular.
