Aged and Purple

I'm working on a swap with other angels to make Christmas cards using stamps that are not considered holiday. So, I used Aged Ornaments along with a text stamp from our Level C Thinking of You set. I also used my Scor-Pal and Scor-Bug for a unique look.


This paper from our Brights DCWV cardstock stack is actually very purple! It just doesn't photo well. I used French Lilac PH ink to stamp the images (the one on the white is stamped off once before stamping on the white) and to distress the card. I also used my Sanding Block on the scored parts first (you know the paper has a white core) and I did not cover the raised parts completely with the purple ink. Pretty cool and very non-traditional, don't you think??

Good Morning Pretty Lady! As I'm sure you recall, Nona is the local queen of purple here in ka-boy country, but I like this card. The hit & miss on the right almost looks like fabric or wallpaper, maybe wainescoating(sp). NICE! Way to go, Honey. Talk soon...
