Pretty in Purple

Hello Everybody!

I know it's Tuesday-but can I tell you I made this card for Cards in Envy: Just Purple.  And as soon as those liquid pearls dried-I put this baby in the envelope and it was off to my son's teacher.  Whew!  Not a moment to spare!  So I had taken some pics before hand, and today here we are.  :)

That's why there is a curvature in my card.  LOL  There was no time to give it the heavy book treatment.  :)

The reason for the curvature is because the base of the card is a torn page from a 2010 Almanac.  I had some glue n seal that needed some water so this ended up more wet than normal.  Then I added gesso to it.  The base of the card is a normal cardstock base from Michaels.  Then I added gelatos and water.  Yay!  I got to use my gelatos!

So one is a lavender and the other is Metallic Grape which gives it some sparkle.  So all of these mixed media things kind of binded up my card.  LOL  But I couldn't stop there.  The background was awesome.  I stamped and fussy cut that cute bunny.  I added the sentiment and sequins and liquid pearls from Faber-Castell (they call them texture gems).  This card made me happy.  :)

Thank you for stopping by today!  Until next time my friends...time to mess with the gelatos some more! :)
