Muted purples

Hi crafters, I have another muted card. I decided to try colour on black paper to get a muted background. I tried distress oxides but they weren’t showing up enough even when oxidised so I tried acrylic paints. This piece has 3 purples and a navy which were roughly but thinly applied to the black paper. I stamped a Hero Arts woodblock Stamp – Starburst Lace from 2010 and silver embossed. I purple embossed a sentiment from the Hero Greetings Occasions Stamp set onto Vellum. I attached the panel to a silver card base with purple foam in between.

I am entering this card in A Blog Named Hero November challenge.

Happy crafting,
