Art With Heart Colour Creations - Gorgeous Grape

This week's colour is the beautiful Gorgeous Grape. I love having a real purple back in the colour range. 
I have two very different cards for you today.
For this card I used a few drops of Gorgeous Grape reinker with a few drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint. This mix was then applied with a sponge dauber. The other colour used here is Lovely Lipstick. The same process was followed. The Happy Birthday was die cut with a piece of Adhesive Sheet behind it which made it very easy to attach. The final touch was a few Black Rhinestones.
 A very simple, but I think, a very stunning card that could be replicated in endless colour combinations.

Here's a close up of the shimmer on the card, quite lovely.

The next card is a completely different style, although again I used Shimmer Paint. The floral image from Very Vintage was stamped in Stazon Jet Black then coloured using a Blender Pen and inks in Gorgeous Grape, Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow. The Frost White Shimmer Paint was then applied LIGHTLY using scrunched up plastic wrap suing a dabbing motion. When dry, only about a minute, I die cut the oval.
The background Gorgeous Grape was embossed using the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder.

There is a small mat in Crushed Curry behind the Gorgeous Grape and Linen Thread and Lace to finish the card. On the card base I stamped the doily image from the Very Vintage set in Versamark.

Thank you for hopping by to see my creations. For more Gorgeous Grape inspiration head to Catherine's Blog for a full lost of participants.

Happy stampin,

Product List


  1. They are both beautiful cards Rachel but I really love the dramatic simplicity and versatility of your first card. I can see this being made up in so many different colour combinations. Thanks for hopping along tonight.

  2. I love the "watercolour washed" look of the first card and how versatile it would be in so many colours. It also has an amazing shine with the shimmer paint.

  3. I love both of your card Rachel, but I think the splash of colour with the shimmer paint is my favourite. so stunning.

  4. The shimmer paint background is so striking but I really like your vintage card with the shimmer paint dabbed on with plastic wrap, very creative.

  5. I love the simplicity of design and colour combination of your first card Rachel and a lovely vintage look to your second card. The addition of the lace softens the whole look - very pretty.
