Pantone Color of the Year ~ Ultra Violet

Welcome to the Pantone Color of the year ~ Ultra Violet challenge.
I have to say....violet or purple is not my favorite color to work with!
So, I decided to just jump in with both feet......
I pulled out a piece of Canvas Corp ~TissueStock
several stencils and a couple of colors of Violet
and a few tubs of The Crafter's Workshop ~ Modeling Paste
and began layering the colors.

As I said previously, I REALLY struggled with the purple.
So, to help tone it down a bit,
 I pulled out a bit of Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glam ~ Bon Bon
and dropped color onto my "made paper".

....even with all the layers, the TissueStock was still a bit flimsy
so I decided to adhered it to a piece of vintage sheet music.

As I was diggin' in my 'Tovers pile,
I found another piece of "made paper" with the same color palette
and a light bulb came on in my head.

I began to tear up my "made paper" and
adhered it to my found 'Tovers "made paper".

But, I still wasn't  TOTALLY happy so
I pulled out a bit of cheese cloth
and applied it to my "paper".

Then, I stenciled on a bit more of the Crafter's Workshop ~ Modeling paste.

...but it still wasn't quite finished yet.
So, I dropped a bit more "violet" onto my paper
and finished it off with some splatters
of The Crafter's Workshop ~ Gesso. I was happy with my "Made Paper".
I cut it up into ATCs and made a few cards.

Here are my finished Ultra Violet cards....

Hope you enjoyed my journey of "Ultra Violet".
