The colour Purple

This weeks challenge at Allsorts is to use the colour Purple.
Not a colour I use very often, no idea why.
The photo is rubbish, can't get my head round this at all.

Image is Woodware - Boxed Daisy Trio, who'd have guessed that.
I have used Promarkers - Purple and Lime green.
Bow die - Sue Wilson
The backing card,  is very old from Craftwork Cards and matches perfectly, couldn't believe it, sentiment also old stuff from C.C. and is placed perfectly, not like the photo shows.
Pearls been hanging around for ages and coloured with Purple Promarker.
The DP, unfortunately I have no idea and this piece is all I have left of it.
I have raised the image with sticky pads, hence the shadow down the left, it is a card not to be posted.

I have also put a little bit of purple glitter glue on the centre of the flowers as they looked a bit flat, doesn't show as purple on this photo.

So the backing paper and the DP are snippets so the only thing to do is head off to the Playground, think we have a dog now, hope Di has her Poop Scoop at the ready.

Thanks for looking and would love to hear your thoughts.

Fab card Kath! Love the purple!!! Lovely image, great colouring and that little bow die cut is gorgeous!
Mind you close the gate when you go into the Playground...wouldn't do to let the dog out!

Oh now that IS pretty Kath. I see you have your mojo back again then! Unpacked it from your suitcase finally did you?

Hugs, Sarn xxx

So pretty Kath is your card and what a gorgeous colour and image used x

Di said...

Wow Kath, this is gorgeous! The purple works so well doesn't it?! And I did snigger at your tongue in cheek comment about the name of the stamp - sometimes they do state the obvious don't they? :)

The dog has settled in nicely - he uses the poop scoop himself, there's clever :) Good to see you in the Playground, missed you!!

A fabulous card - I do like purple. It goes to show that if you throw nothing away, it all comes in useful. You just have to dig deep into that crafty stash box, lol. Lynn x
