Aubergine is such a rich fall color, and many things in nature sport this amazing hue. Imagine is featuring three lovely cards that focus on the use of this color, go check them out! Lotus flowers come in many versions, and one is the lovely color of aubergine. Using a layered stamp made quick work of creating a few charming flowers to decorate a pretty card. A bit of Electric Yellow Amplify! adds the stamen texture to the lotus flower. The basket weave background matches the leaves perfectly as the same Memento ink was applied to the embossing folder as was used to stamp the leaf images. Blending two colors Versa Magic ink creates a realistic color for the water of the pond, which reminded me of the photo that inspired this classic card. To carry the color theme throughout the card, a backing layer is inked with an ink blusher and matching Elderberry Memento ink. The sentiment is also stamped in the vivid Aubergine color to complete the look.
