are having a monochromatic challenge at Dynamic Duosthis week. Our color duo is Wisteria Wonder and Concord
Crush. Purple is on of my favorite colors, and I am a huge fan of sending purple Christmas cards!
I did have Wisteria Wonder in my paper stash. Sadly, no Concord Crush. None of my other purples seem to fit into the right shade. I ended up adding several layers of Wisteria Wonder ink to white cardstock to get as close as possible to Concord Crush. When the ink was wet, it looked to be a perfect match. Fast forward ten minutes and it dried to a slightly light shade. I still thought it was dark enough to get the effect of the light and dark purple. Feel free to come up with your own combination of light and dark purple for your monochromatic creation!
I cut my ornament shape with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. The stamped image is part of the Ornamental Cheer stamp set. All of the stamps in the set coordinate with ornament shapes that are included on the Art Philosophy cartridge. Here is a look at the whole set:
The red outlines around the images indicate that there is a shape on the Art Philosophy cartridge that coordinates with the image. My purple bow was made with Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon and Wisteria Wonder reinker. Do you buy a reinker when you purchase your ink pads? I highly recommend purchasing a reinker whenever you purchase an ink pad. Reinkers can be used for far more projects than just reinking your ink pad. If the color of your stamp pad happens to be discontinued, you will be so thankful that you previously purchased the reinker as well! Some of my stamp pads are over 15 years old and still going strong. The pads are in great shape and have just had reinker added as needed. Whenever I buy new ink colors, I always purchase the reinker at the same time if possible.
