Elegant Purple Eggplant

Isn't this the season of eggplants and zucchini's?  Since I was making projects this month - with the theme,  "Out of the Garden" - Elegant Eggplant seemed like the best choice for this monochromatic card.  I suppose, it's one more excuse for me to bring my favorite color onto my craft table:  Elegant Eggplant!

What do I love about monochromatic cards?
1.  Easy color combo!
2.  Surely, I can find just 1 favorite color to use...
3.  Offers an elegant and/or serious nature to the card.

I was inspired by someone's website - (and now must hunt it down to show you - but I will) - to create a water-colored design on an embossed image.  I used the aqua painter to pull ink off of the coordinating Elegant Eggplant stamp pad and lightly dab into the petals of the Flower Garden embossing folder.  To finalize the edges, I sponged Elegant Eggplant ink around the sides of the card.

So glad you could stop by.
Have a wonderful day!


  1. Oh my goodness Luci, this is drop dead gorgeous!!!! I have never though of using 2 EF's together like this. You are amazing!

  2. Did I ever tell you that the colors I chose for my wedding were shades of purple, including the shade of Elegant Eggplant? That was the color of my bride's maids' dresses : ). So fun that we share the love for purple.

    Your card is beautiful! Where would we be without the Big Shot embossing folders?


I do appreciate your comments. Thank you for visiting!
