Hi there, Martha Lucia here! Today I have a fun project creating a Violet rainbow with your Memento Inks. This month the design team of Image is featuring the amethyst color and I decided to use not exactly violet colors but some colors from the same line.
Skill: Beginner – Intermediate Time: 20 minutes
Most of the work in this design is coloring the background. I started with a whisper white piece of cardstock and masking tape. As you can notice on the photo my initial idea was using four colors of Memento Ink but at the end, I changed my mind and used five. The colors of Memento Ink that I used were Paris Dusk, Grape Jelly, Lilac Posies, Lulu Lavender and the versatile London Fog. By the way, London Fog is one of my favorites colors of Memento Ink because it can be used to no-line coloring and also is great for watercolor and many other techniques.
Next, I stamped the large beautiful flower stamp from Waffle Flower’s “In Bloom” stamp set. Since I used dye inks in the background, I can now stamp over the inked layer with VersaMark Ink and MBoss Embossing Powder Sapphire. To create the contrast, I stamped the “Bloom” sentiment over Whisper White cardstock with VersaMark Ink and the same color of MBoss. I fussy cut with scissors the sentiment and added it to the project using double-sided foam tape.
Are you enjoying all the inspiration so far this month with the Waffle Flower and Imagine collaboration? The Waffle Flower Iris You stamp set I thought went perfectly with this months color of the month, Amethyst.

The super adorable Waffle Flower stamps are perfect for coloring in with Memento ink! I love that I can create a simple, fun card with minimal supplies and have something adorable to give away. I used a little bit of Memento in Grape Jelly in both of my images and then found a matching piece of amethyst glitter cardstock to pull the whole thing together!
