Purplicious Delicious!

This week at Craft Your Passion it’s all about technique.We’d love to see some CRIMPLED PAPER .Screw it up in a ball,run it through a ribbler,add some ink or colour,use DP,get as messy or stay as clean as you like,do anything- the choice is yours.Plus it’s so much fun!!There’s the chance to win some fab digi images too!!Pop along to play along and gain some inspiration from the wonderful DT creations.Although we want you to have fun PLEASE read and abide by the few rules we have (they’re in the sidebar plus a reminder of  one in the challenge post).

I got to play with this sassy little lady – she goes by the name of  Rockette sexy and can be found at CoCo Dingo Digital Stamps.I made this card for my DD1 who’s Birthday is coming up this month.So it made a lot of sense to go purple as it’s one of her favourite colours.Being a total mucky pup I decided to get out my Moon Shadow spray inks.They are made up of walnut ink with added mica powder.They don’t look much when wet but once they start to dry the shimmer really shows.I started with a piece of normal copy paper and gave it a liberal dousing with the ink then screwed it up in a ball- just like that!I uncurled it whilst still wet being careful not to tear it and left it to dry.I think this technique really lends itself to these inks as the mica tends to gather at the creases.A few words of warning tho’.These are great to work with but can stain.I used mine in the kitchen on a plastic sheet,wore rubber gloves and mopped up any mist that escaped immediately and you definitely don’t want to be wearing your best clothes!

So maybe you CAN make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear!(Sorry if you not familiar with the phrase).I even had enough left over to make a crumpled flower.I found a great tutorial by accident here.I did make a few changes tho’.I only used a 1  1/2″ plain circle punch,6 layers and a small brad.
