Jane Netley Mayhew 'Violets' Card

Hi folks. Hope you are well. I made this card using the newly released Jane Netley Mayhew 'Violet' rubber stamp set.
I covered the dark card completely with Versamark ink and swirled on various colours of Cosmic Shimmer Mica powders with a soft dry brush. I then inked up the Violet stamp with Versamark and stamped randomly across the card. The inked impression lifted up the mica powder. The picture above shows the results quite well but you can click on it for a closer look.
The patterned papers are by 'Hot Off The Press'. I stamped the image onto green patterned paper and lilac patterned paper and cut out some of the leaves and flower heads. I sprayed these with Mica spray before adhering them to the main image. I used my circle and scalloped circle Nestabilities. I also used my EK Success border punch. I finished off by adding a large sparkly bow and some decorative pins.
Ciao for now!

What a beautiful effect you've created here Sandra!
I hadn't thought about stamping onto coloured papers rather than colouring a stamped image, but it looks stunning.
