You Are An Angel

Happy Wednesday to you!  It's hump day!!!  Woot!  And it's also time for another installment of my Purple Passion column over at MFP Speedy TV.  Each week, I show an example of how to incorporate purple in your projects. Sometimes it's a little and sometimes it's A LOT!

This week, I decided to go for another card using Tim Holtz Distress Inks by Ranger.  I've done a total of three of these in the past few months and I just love the technique.  This time, I chose a Christmas stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers called You Are An Angel.  I wanted to make a golden light effect around her head and halo, so I chose various shades of yellows and oranges for my color palette.  After stamping my image with Black Memento ink, I started with the lightest yellow and covered the entire page.  Then I used the next darkest color and didn't go quite to the center.  A little less for the third color, and so on until the darkest orange was used just around the edges of the page.

I love the effect of purple and orange together since they're on the opposite sides of the color wheel, so I had to put a purple mat behind my main picture.  I mounted all of that onto a yellow card base that matched the yellow in my inks, and voila!

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
