Its Royal in Purple

I don't often create using purples but I'd say that was a good choice for this card.
 I also wanted to use the CAS(e) this sketch.  I started out with an adorable little stamp from Stamps by Judith.  To go along with the sketch, I added a strip of paper colored with purple Distress Stain and a die cut word from Simon Says Stamp.   
 Once the image was stamped with white ink and embossed with white embossing powder, I just kept adding different colors of Distress Stain, mixed with spritzes of water on watercolor paper. The white embossed image acts as a resist to the inks.  The butterfly is a stamp from Clearly Besotted.  This also fits the Simon Says Flickr Challenge. 
This is the CAS(e) this sketch.
And the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge of Anything Goes.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
