Shades of Purple

Challenge #Lilac and Purple

For this project I chose one of my favourite Belles and Whistles stamps, once again by the artist Elisabeth Bell.

I coloured the image with different shades of purple copic pens and used a fine liner pen for the corner border.  The papers were from Debbie Moore and Joanna Sheen CD Roms and the plain paper and card stock was from Crafters Companion.

I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the border on the main image and embellished with some Marianne Flourish dies and some pearls.

I love how this combination work together.

What a gorgeous card Sharon. I love the soft touch to the card and your coloring is fantastic. Also very beautiful are the flourishes, they are accompanying the image perfectly!
Thanks for playing with us at BnW this week!
