LIM week 49- predominately purple

I've wanted to try and do this for ages, but it hasn't turned out quite how I envisaged it - does it ever LOL! I cut with my silhouette a flower out of some coredinations card stock, then embossed it with a SU folder and rubbed back the card to expose the core. I then mounted it onto a white card and stamped into the aperture. I think I would have been better using some foam tape to keep the aperture showing more.......
Anyway, this is my entry for this weeks Less is More challenge- predominately purple, my favourite colour, so happy, happy me.
I'm out and about with work this week so I doubt I will be able to do much commenting. If I don't get a head start at the weekend (and I didn't) then I never get to it.

I do think this is one of my favourite EF Lynn, it looks FAB treted as you have with the rubbing of the surface.
I agree about the 3d foam

Happy new year, I don;t think I said it personally to you

Thanks so much

My personal thought is that as the aperture is a simple flower shape, the embossing, being a much softer image doesn't sit too comfortably with the aperture.
I think it's a great idea and I love the embossing. The whole technique is a super one, I don't know if the Silhouette could cut a similar flower as the one on the EF maybe in a smaller size.
Ignore my ramblings Lynn... it looks great as it is but my mind was just running away with me!
Thanks so much

Hi Linby, great idea and I think 3D foam would make a huge difference too...hope you don't mind me suggesting that an EF with a smaller, delicate or repetitive pattern would probably work better too :)
Hold in there, wont be long until the weekend again
