Purple Love - The East Wind DT project!

Howzit Stamping Friends!

We're having a May Challenge celebrating all the wonderful ladies in our lives over at The East Wind blog.  Whether it be Mother's Day cards or Just Because cards for your girl friends come and join the fun!

Here's my inspiration project, a study in shades of purple featuring The East Wind digi called "Aurora Love You".  I love creating monochromatic projects using purple, one of my annuals for girls had a featured cartoon that was always done in just purples, I loved it and has really stuck with me all these years.

I printed her out onto Neenah solar white cardstock and coloured her with Copics and the contents of the flower pot were coloured with gel pens in glitter, metallic and regular opaque.  For lots of hightlights, magical sparkle and dimension I used a white Dylusion paint pen, clear Wink of Stella on her lips and ribbons and Viva Le Pearl Magic Transparent White on her eye highlights and all the flower pot contents.  The background was done with black Derwent Pastel pencil blended with Dove blender pen.  I distressed the edges of the cardstock with Tim's paper distresser tool and adhered the panel to 2 mats cut from 2 different shades of purple cardstock.  I completed my card with self adhesive purple pearls adhered to all 4 corners.
here you can see the dimensional flowers
