New Challenge at Through the Purple Haze Challenges #39 - April 28 Sketch

There is a new Challenge at Through the Purple Haze Challenges!!

This week is Team B and we were given a lovely Sketch to use.


We have two sponsors this week!  We have Aurora Wings

 So, here's my card using the Aurora Wings image Pansy.
Prize is $10 coupon.   

My background paper is from my stash. I used an embossing folder to emboss some purple cardstock and then cut in one inch strips. That became my "ribbon". A butterfly sticker became the "bow".  I added the self adhesive pearls to the center of six embossed designs. All items are from my stash.

I printed the Pansy digi onto X-press it copic cardstock and cut an oval with my Cuttlebug using Spellbinders Ovals Nestabilities and then layered onto a purple piece of cardstock cut with the Scalloped Ovals Nestabilities of the same size.  I colored the image with Copic markers.

 Copic Colors I used:
Skin: E000, E01, E21, R20
Eyes: V12, V93
Lips: R83
Hair: E77, E7, E50, E89
Leaves: YG01, YG13
Pansy: Y35, FYR1, FV2, V17, V12
Other Flowers: R22, B01, B06
Background: C2 and B000

Delicious Doodles is our other sponsor this week!
 Prize is 4 images.

My card with the Delicious Doodles image, Fern the Forest Fairy is here below.

I used a 6 x 6 piece of patterned paper for my background layer and ran it through the Xyron machine so that my lace would stick down. I secured the lace with three dragonfly brads and an ivory rose that I colored the edges with  Copic R02.

My image was printed off on X-Press It Copic cardstock and layered with a burnt orange paper from my stash. I used a corner rounder to round off both layers. Best little invention ever!!

My image is colored with Copic markers.
