Pretty in Purple for Mojo Monday

  I found a beautiful colour palette on Pinterest with lilacs as the inspiration and decided to use it for my Mojo Monday card this week.

I heard somewhere that purple is a very trending colour this year, especially for weddings.
This week's Mojo Monday sketch is quite unique:

I love those diagonal stripes.  Here's how I put it all together:

  • To match the colour palette, I used Blackberry Bliss, Smoky Slate, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder.  The DSP is from the Regals Collection Designer Series Paper Stacks and it is a Perfect Plum design backed by Perfect Plum cardstock.
  • I had a blast playing with a new stamp set and framelit bundle I just ordered.  It's the Flower Patch Photopolymer set and the matching Flower Fair Framelits.  These are a lot of fun to stamp with because you can do two and three-step stamping without needing to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig.  You can see exactly where you are placing the stamp.
  • The sentiment is from the same set and I stamped it in Blackberry Bliss ink.
  • I had a little trouble at first getting the solid images completely solid, but after I had cleaned the stamps once, they worked really well.  The top flower is one layer with different stamps and inks creating the layered look.  The flower underneath has a center that is stamped in layers and then die cut and layered it with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • The hallmark of this great design by Julee Tilman is the diagonal stripes and I love how well it works with the Stitched Satin ribbon in Blackberry Bliss.  The cool thing is that the stripes have stripes and they're all diagonal!
  • Some Smoky Slate Candy Dots add the finishing touches!
