Violet Cameo

Happy Saturday  to you.  This week I have the second in a series of cameo cards.  This one I call Violet Cameo and I'll bet you can tell why.  This is Deep Red Stamps , Cameo Nouveau.  I just love all the wonderful filigree detail around the border of the stamp and the pretty lady's silhouette with those pretty jewels.

     This is the first time I've used twinkling H20's on a card and I just love the sheen they give and the way the show all the filigree detail in the Cameo Nouveau   I mixed a lavender and gold together for this dreamy cameo.  I also used the lavender H20's on the embossed portion of the rose border and the butterfly's wings.

     I couldn't resist this beautiful Violet paper when I first saw it at the store, I mean with a daughter named Violet, do you really think I would even try?  Even if I didn't have the daughter, this paper is just gorgeous.  I did add a layer of stickles to all the light portions of the Violets and wow does it sparkle.

     I used gold wrapping paper purchased on clearance after Christmas for all my gold mats.  It's such a good deal and sooo much cheaper than gold card stock and that means I can buy more stamps.
