This week's Do You Stack Up? (DYSU) challenge is to use purple. No problem! And since it's a colour my mother-in-law also likes, this is a Mother's Day card for her.
(Just to clarify: purple's not my FAVOURITE colour; that's red. But I do like purple.)
This card allowed me to try something I picked up recently that I'm now in love with: Twinkling H2Os. WOW. They really are as glimmery and shimmery as everyone says they are! I was able to find a store that sold individual pots; I didn't really want to drop funds on a multi-pack before I knew if I would like them or not. One thing I now know is that what the paint looks like in the pot is not exactly what it will look like when you use it. In the lidded pot under fluorescent store lights, this Stargazer shade looked like a light blue. When you use it, it's a lovely blue/mauve sparkly mix, perfect with this Almost Amethyst cardstock. The shimmer refuses to show up properly in the photo, as do the two score lines on the white panel. What you can see a bit of is the decorated inside of the card, something I rarely do, but which worked perfectly with this card.
If you're a scrapbooker (I'm NOT), happy national scrapbooking day; if you're a mom, happy Mother's Day tomorrow... otherwise, happy weekend! ☺
