Simply Create Too Challenge 165 - Use only Purple and Black

When the Simply Create Too Design Team was asked to create a card using only 2 colours - Black and Purple - I was not sure how I could make a colour using those two colours. I put my thinking hat on and tried modifying an embossing folder I received with a purchase of a craft magazine. I embossed it using both a purple and a black piece of card stock and cut the finished design at the sentiment and pieced it together to create a two coloured card. I added 3 black gems to complete the design.

After completing my first card, I realized I could use multiple shades of purple to create a card. I started with a 5 x 7 sheet of white Neenah Solar White Cardstock and inked it with all my shades of Distress and Distress Oxide Inks. Once that was done, I decided to add circles of colour using a stencil I created with my circle dies and punches for a bokeh effect. I also slashed the inks with water to complete the background. Next, I used a simple butterfly frame in black and added a die-cut sentiment from SSS.
