Predominantly Purple

Here's my card for this week's Less is More which uses one of my favourite stamp from last year, a gate by Stamp Addicts.  The background was brushed with a mixture of purple inks and then heavily sprayed with water; the moon was masked off.  I inked my dotty stamp with the same purples and added some texture to the background.  The foliage either side comes from a branch stamp and the sentiment is embossed with Adirondack Eggplant.  The mirri layer is silver, it looks more gold here!
