Summer Card Camp 2: Week 3 Day 1


This week's color combo for Summer Card  Camp 2 is challenging.  I love purple, but rarely do I use it on a card.

I'm not gonna lie, this card took me a very long time.  It started as something totally different but I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I used sketch 1 above and the layered stamped background technique that Jennifer McGuire went over today but it's a little hard to see (I think a lighter shade of purple would have worked better for this technique).  Pardon the extremely wet cupcake, I added some rock candy stickles and they weren't dry yet.
Here's a better look at the layer stamped background:

Thanks for looking!

Supplies: Neenah desert storm cardstock, Memories Unicorn White ink, Hero Arts Grape Juice ink, Hero Arts latte chalk ink, May Arts twine, Avery Elle cupcakes stamp and die set, Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist cardstock, Versafine onyx ink, V12 and V04 copic markers, rock candy stickles, wink of stella clear glitter pen,  Kelly Purkey make a wish stamp set, Mama Elephant trifecta stamp set
