Grab and Add

Hello.  Welcome.  Merry Christmas.  The big day has arrived again, although actually here in Norway we kicked off big style with food and presents yesterday evening.  Today has been pleasantly peaceful after the last few busy weeks.  So wherever you are and however you are celebrating I hope you are having a merry and happy time.  

I'm not sure what happened to December!  I just don't seem to have found crafty time.  I was intending to lock myself in my craft room today but that plan went a bit by the way as well.  So finally this evening I decided to stop mucking around and finish a card I started the other day for the Mark's Finest Paper challenge.  They want to see a mostly purple creation and I wanted to use a new stamp from Sweet Pea.  

 I stamped One and Only Heart with purple ColorBox dye ink.  I added purple brusho powder and sprayed with water that I had added Windsor and Newton Iridescent Watercolour Medium to.  Serious bling, alas not showing in this picture.  Then I coloured the image with various purple distress inks and a red gel pen.  I ripped the paper in a rough diamond shape and layered on purple paper and a Bazzill card base.  The happy birthday is from Mark's Finest Paper Tiger set. 

Thanks for taking the time to visit.  Hugz
