Going Purple!

Literally! I am going purple! Just got the flu bug! Aaah it sucks! :(
Therefore I wont write a lot (I can hear sighs of relief!).


So about the card, the dark purple layer has hand drawn designs on it, drew them myself. I could’ve just lined them with a gel pen but then I thought of doing extra hard work and embossing them, which took hell lot of a time. This embossing paste I talk about all the time is available in a cone, like when we decorate cakes- yeah, that cone. So I apply the paste and sprinkle glitter on it before it dries. Takes time. Wait till you see the other card design that I will be uploading, that is real hard work! Lol



The image is again from colouring pages, I coloured it myself.
The curvy strip in between is not quite perfect because I drew it myself and cut it out.
The flowers! You peeps know by now how much I love flowers! They add a little something extra to a card! As always I drew the flowers by myself and cut them. The thing on the top right is the same thing as in the middle of the flowers. It’s a circular piece of card stock which now looks like an inverted lens. You can learn all these tricks from Mainly Flowers.


Here you can see the design somewhat. Most of it is hidden behind the layers! Flu has clogged my mind, should've thought about it earlier.
I am loving the colour combination of this card. I'll make more as soon as I get better!

Amazing! The embossing paste sounds painstaking, but it is certainly worth it. This is just so lovely. Have you tried a Sakura Quickie glue pen? You can draw with it as easily as any pen and then sprinkle on embossing powder and heat it or add glitter. I love doing it. :0)
