I Love Purple...


So how come I never use it when I’m making cards? So I decided to use purple for today’s sketch challenge on SCS. I had to do the sketch in mirror image to make it work out for this image. Hope you don’t mind!

This image is a PIF from Sammysue1975. Thank you Laura!

Oh, and before I forget: Yes! The cool black frame I used on my DH's valentines card was cut from the Cricut Storybook Cartridge. I think it's called Marquee4?

I used my Cut then Ink Technique to get my layers to line up. There is a lot going on here so I kept this background simple and just sponged sky, clouds, and grass. I colored this image my usual way. Assembled and I'm done.

Stamps: Sugar Nellie Post Box
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Ink: Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Copics, Prismacolor pencils and goo gone, Cricut George, Circle Punch


Enjoy!
