Cards in Envy - Just Purple card challenge

I really enjoyed this card design, so I decided to do another one. This time in purple, which isn't a color I use very often in card-making. But Cards in Envy's current challenge is Just Purple, so I pulled out my purple Brusho powder. For the background, I simply wet the paper and sprinked the Brusho powder on, letting it create a fun multi-colored design. Then for the chevron die cut, I mixed the powder into a solid purple and painted the die cut piece. I just love how it turned out!

  6. Oh how beautiful. I have always liked purple (and green) but this is unbelievable - it's simple but just the right amount of WOW to be gorgeous. Can I create the background with Color Burst powder color?

    1. Thank you! I've never used the Color Burst powder before, but I believe it works the same as Brusho. Give it a try!
