Here's my pretty  - 'lovely' - card that I created using my fave PWP stamp set, Nouveau.......

Soooooo gorgeously girly! 
(& lots of inky, messy fun here too!)

Here's the Nouveau Stamp Set you'll want to get your hands on......

Love this Stamp Set! So divine & really versatile!!!

Want to know how I created this lil number? 

It's super easy!

Start by clear, heat-embossing the Nouveau stamp in the centre of the card. 
Spritz, paint and splatter a few different shades of purple watercolour & allow to dry.
Heat treat the clear embossed image until it literally 'melts away' and intensifies the purple colouring.
Stamp the border trim stamp in black ink - above and below the main image.
Ink the card edges and then embellish with purple cotton thread, blooms, metal leaves & sentiment.
Voila! Told you it was easy-peasy!
But it looks so lovely!

Thankyou so much for joining us today!

Please be sure to leave a comment &
 now it's time to send you over to Carmen's blog for more purple inspiration!
