Overcoming Stampers Withdrawal- part 4

Used an old Embossing Arts stamp, and Marvy brush markers, to make this card. This card and matching envelope was made by making two impressions with the stamp before reinking. It gives the card a muted, vintage feel. Then used a striped stencil and sponged purple ink on purple cardstock to make the rich background. Entering it into a Purple challenge and a food and drink challenge. Yummy!

I purchased a box of assorted scripture cards some time ago. Always loved the look of this one so decided to dress it up with some layers of card stock, a bit of ribbon and a charm to give it an elegant finish.

Another card for the AAA Stamps Rainbow challenge. Tried to keep this one as a true CAS with lots of white background. Brayered a rainbow on glossy card stock (hence, the reflective shine), embossed the sentiment on black paper, and added a few rain drop sparkles.
