Less is More 49 - Colour Purple

Week 49 of Less is More and it's a colour challenge.
 
So onto the first week of the month and a colour challenge
this time we want to see 
Predominantly Purple




For my card I stamped I used two stamp sets from Chocolate Baroque - Butterfly Blush, a set of solid  butterfly shapes and Just Butterflies, a corresponding detailed butterfly stamp.
Sentiment also from CB
First I stamped the solid shape with DI Dusty Concord and then spritzed it with water to make the edges blur a little (how much it blurs will depend on cardstock and quantity of water!) I then dried it with the heat gun and stamped over the top with the detailed stamp. Used Cut n Dry foam with Dusty Concord around the edges, matted onto some black cardstock and added some Kanban gems.

(Sorry about the appalling picture - trying to take pictures in the evening and not get a shadow!)

I love the way the Distress Ink has given a touch of blue to your butterfly too. The gems really finish this off beautifully & I love your sentiment.
