Purple and Silver are two colours that I do not use very much, as you expect I will be loquacious in my narrative!
Purple is a glorious yet complex colour; a bit of an enigma, as it is both sensual and spiritual; it is a mix of the excitement of Red and the tranquillity of Blue. So it is very surprising even to me, that I do not use this palette on a regular basis.
I would like to think I am sensual and have a tad of excitement about me.
And as for Silver, well this magnificent chroma which illuminates everything it comes in contact with, is glamorous, sophisticated and alluring, and relates a positive feeling even though it is seen as a cool colour, but it also has the unfortunate association to growing old; Silver hair!
All these adjectives sound wonderful, and I can understand why many card-makers like to work with this palette. I like the partnership of these two feminine colours as well and when
The shape of my card was cut on the cricut. I inked everything up in milled lavender and dusky concord distress inks.
To create the Silver effect;which does not photograph well, I applied silver leaf and burnished it over the embossed Bg.
My stamp is the 'Music Wreath' from Stamp-it, which I White embossed, then inked over using a selection of colours. I fussy-cut the Holly leaves and Berries.
I will finish off with a few words .... as I am apt to do.
"As we grow older, how quickly the months disappear.
All of a sudden-whoosh-December is here.
There are presents to buy and cards to write.
Planning the dinner; Turkey or Lamb,
or maybe a picnic with salad and ham.
However each family plans to celebrate,
this special important once-a-year date.
Take time to pause and reflect on the reason,
I wish everyone Joy at this festive season."
