Purple and Yellow Challenge

This was a real challenge for me! I really had to think on this one for a while. Angie issued a challenge to the Designing D.I.V.A.S. to make a card using any yellow and purple plus a neutral color. In addition the card needed to use a flower somewhere on it and at least one other embellishment. I started with a background from Stampabilities and embossed it with clear embossing powder and then heat set it. Using the emboss resist technique, I sponged yellow and lavender inks over that panel and then wiped off the excess ink. The image is from the Close to My Heart set Flower Child and was colored with Prismacolor pencils. Stamps are from CTMH and Stampabilities, ink is Versamark chalk inks, paper is DCWV, button is from Making Memories and ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

I appreciate everyone's advice on the airbrush system. I am still trying to decided so I would still love the hear about your preference or experiences. Thanks for visiting!
