I started off by stamping and embossing "Just to let you know you're in my thoughts today" on light purple metalic paper in black ink.
This is a closer shot of it.
This is the background part way finished.
I really like using the different shade of purple on the dark purple paper. It make it look like the paper came like that.
I used a light purple, dark purple and a maroonish color ink.
Here I was thinking of maybe turning the dark metalic purple paper..
