Glimmered Swirls and Dragonfly

I've been playing with my Glimmer Mists, and my fingers are all purple! LOL This card is just something that came about in a random fashion.

When I sprayed the smaller piece of cardstock, I started with Sunflower, then I went over here and there with Fully Purple. It didn't get as "purple" as the background piece did, so I sprayed Olive Vine on top of that. I really like this mixture of colors.

The background piece is just sprayed with Fully Purple - nothing else. Isn't that a gorgeous purple color? It is so shimmery when you hold it in your hands.

The stamps on this card are from Cornish Heritage Farms - Beautiful and Garden Friends. I love the swirls in the Beautiful set, and the colors of the smaller glimmered piece dictated that I needed to stamp a dragonfly on it. To help set off the background piece, I went over the edges with a Gold Krylon paint pen.

Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms - Beautiful & Garden Friends
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
CS: Basic Black, Whisper White
Glimmer Mists: Fully Purple, Olive Vine, Sunflower
Other: Gold Krylon paint pen

I have never done glitter mists. Sounds fun. Your card is stunning. I love the purple and gold together. And by the way, I nominated you for an award on my blog.
