Purple Haze...

Happy Monday Folks, today is a lovely crafting pal's Birthday and I do hope the Purple Princess has a great day in store - Happy Birthday Matey !

Of course, I had to include some purple in the card I created for her so here it is

I know that Kathy loves the Clean and Simple (CAS) style of design and she is also very fond of the Paper Artsy JOFY stamps designed by Jo Firth-Young which both she and I acquired recently.  I hope I've achieved a design that 'ticks all her boxes' with my card.

The background panel was created using Mustard Seed and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks, applied using a blending mat and Inkyliscious brushes, then layered over a slightly larger scrap of cardstock matching the colour of the ink.  I then stamped the yummy JOFY image in the centre of the panel using black Memento ink before colouring the 'flowers' using Copics.  The sentiment is from the Inkadinkado set I love (and have used a lot lately !) these words are amongst my fave, this was also stamped using Memento Black. 

That's it, clean simple and hopefully colours that PP will love.

Thanks for popping in to check out today's project, hope you've enjoyed your visit.

Oh! How lovely! I'm afraid our Purple Pal got a JOFY card from me too, though I couldn't manage clean and simple ;oD

This card should certainly help Kathy have a wonderful day - lovely colours used with a great new stamp.

Hope you're not working too hard LOL

The Purple Princess herself will adore it Wynneth. The sentiment and the thoughtful stamped images you put in look amazing together.
Let's hope she enjoyed her day with not too much jet lag!
