The Colour Purple

Hi there folks,

Well, we had a fantastic time up the east coast and believe it or not, we had some fabulous weather too (I even came back with a bit of a suntan!) Lol. Lots of rest and relaxation, along with trips to the seaside (and way too many calories to count!) Best get back on that diet! Lol.

Anyway, we have a brand new challenge over at Fantasy Stampers today and the theme is


This just happens to be one of my favourite colours - here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

I was spoiled for choice with this one as I love anything purple, but was still in a 'magical' mood after my post on Tuesday so dug out this little 'Fairy House' stamp from Lavinia Stamps.

I stamped it first in black Versafine ink, then masked it out and added a moon mask to the background. Next I began inking to make the sky and hills using three different coloured distress inks in 'Milled Lavender', 'Seedless Preserve' and 'Dusty Concord'.

I coloured the little houses with Promarkers and glitter pens, then added a little extra glitter around the stamp for some more sparkle. The stamped sentiment is from another set from my stash and the border around the edge was stamped using the bottom section of an Inkylicious stamp.

Lots of layering to finish off and some purple adhesive pearls in the corners.

I hope you will come and play along with your own purple creations - remember, it doesn't have to be a card.

Hugz, Jan xx
