The first color combo in the paint book was this one they call "modern elegance". I actually LOVE it even though there was a lot of purple. Here is a shot of just the card. I did the black embossing on the purple in a really roundabout way. I inked a white glossy sheet with orchid ink, then stamped the backgrounder stamp with versamark and clear embossed. Then I ran a black inkpad over the raised area. I really like the look it gave. And I did a little detail on the inside too:
I'm sure you all already knowbut the gray is HOT right now. I don't think much about orchid/purple at all, but turns out it looks fab with gray. I actually love this purple card.
