Less is More -- The Color Purple

I used to make some "unusual" cards a few years ago, and then I changed my audience.  When Less is More determined that purple would be the color for Week 279, I immediately thought of alcohol inks on glass.  Instead of a glass tile, I found an acrylic one that was the size I wanted.  And because of the limited size, I went to my "faces" stamp drawer and found the Stampers Anonymous eye.  Perfect.  (The tile is adhered with spray adhesive.) The sentiment is from Hampton Art Stamps.

Fantastic combo of sentiment and image stamp, and the alcohol inks on the tile look amazing! This is a show stopper for the purple challenge, Evelyn!

This is beautiful, Evelyn. Congratulations on coming up with such inspiration. And the fact you used acrylic block is really cool. How you think of these things!!!! Love the color used and a great quote.
