The Card Concept Challenge #70-Purple Haze

Hello my stampy friends!! 
Hope everyone is having a great week!
We are starting a new challenge today here at 

Look at these gorgeous purples!

Each designer at the Card Concept chooses a different style of card to make!  All of the styles are explained HERE.
You can use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.

 This week I chose the Freestyle Collage style.

  • unrelated elements in a collection
  • can be done in any style


I had just received my very first Ken Oliver ColorBurst watercolor powders, so I was dying to try them out! WOW! They are so much fun!!!

I wet some watercolor paper with water and a brush. Then I spritzed the wet paper with the ColorBurst powders. I used Orchid, Fuchsia and Lime Green Colorburst powders. After the paper dried, I splattered it with some Blue Gold and White Gold splatters from my Gansai Tambi Starry  Colors paint set.

I decided to highlight the gold in the inspiration photo with the Big Hello (MFT). It was die cut with gold foil paper. 

I die cut a large star from SU vellum with the Shaker Shapes (PTI) die. The black star strip was die cut with the MFT Star border die. I added clear droplets to finish my collage card!

I hope you will be inspired to join us here at 

And don't forget to visit my very talented team mates for some gorgeous inspiration!
