The latest challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies is to use the color Purple in a card.
I saw this idea used in Die-Cutting Essentials magazine (pg 31) by Tara Capewell
and so I had a go at it
I think my oval was a bit too small - should have used the next size up
I think I would also use a die cut with a featured edge next time too
- perhaps a stitched line?
Anyway, I liked the idea and it worked - I used my new Penny black stamp Fresh and Momento Black ink but I am not that happy with my ink pad.
I think I need a new black ink to go to when I want a clear black line every time - the Momento is OK most of the time but I note that Tara used a Ranger Archival ink and it gives a strong outline.
I used a sentiment from SU Pursuit of Happiness set and my Copic pens to colour
I had a packet of 3 of these from Shiploads $2 shop and thought it was just the place to use it.
Instead of using card behind as a mount, I ran my Copic pen around the outside of the white card blank and pretended I had mounted the image.
Colouring in make me happy so the sentiment makes sense to me!
Anyway, you can go purple in your own way and you have a fortnight to enter it at

Now, that's how nature does purple.......
