Jane Austen said, "What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance." How well said.....I totally agree with dear 'ole Jane!!
Today's card was made for the Double "D" Challenge. This time we are invited to use shades of purple. Just look at this wonderful set of tiles they have provided us for inspiration.
These colors are so luscious they just make my mouth water. Did I mention that purple is my favorite color?? And it's my friend Ina's favorite too. Hope you can play, Ina!!
HERE'S MY CARD
I had so much fun making this. I used Altenew's beautiful set called Peony Scrolls. I stamped the images on watercolor paper and pulled out my Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers. I haven't used them in ages, I don't know why. The colors are just beautiful, and so vibrant. The purple background piece was watercolored with Brushos.
I liberally used Wink of Stella on the flowers, hope you can see the glitter here.
Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Lovely Lavender and Black Onyx Card Stock
Patterned Paper from my Stash
Altenew Peony Scrolls Stamps and Dies
Cheery Lynn Designs Burlap Die Cut (thanks, Kathy!)
Crafty Secrets Stamp for Greeting
Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers

So that's it for me tonight. I'm sitting in front of the fan. We don't have AC, Northern Michigan isn't supposed to get this hot....lol. Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments!!
