Stampotique Designers Challenge # 4 The Colour Purple

This week, Kim Prince has challenged us to create a card using the colour purple as the main colour. You can use any shade or tone of purple, hopefully this will make it a bit easier on those who don't use a lot of purple on their projects. Please remember, this week's challenge is a Stampotique Originals only week! So get out your stamps and play with us! You could win free rubber from Stampotique!

I used Gooseneck or my creation. I coloured her with Copics adding a wee bit of Spica pen to hem of her skirt for a little glitter. The polka dotted background around her is created by using the copic colours in the image to create a series of different sized dots. The amount of pressure that you put on the marker tip, will determine the size of the dot that you create.

The DP is from DCWV Fairy Tale Stack which is a little dated, but I have seen it around still in larger stores. The sentiment; "I hope we're never too old for ice cream and fancy dresses" is also available in the online store. Ribbons and Pearls are misc~!

I wanted to share a few photographs from this past weekend. In Canada we celebrate Victoria Day in memory of Queen Victoria. Although Canada gained it's independence from the Monarchy years ago, have ties to Great Britain and the English Commonwealth. I love having the holiday weekend and often try to pass it off as "my" weekend since my full name is Victoria
