Hello!  Monday, already?!  I’m really not a purple girl so when a purple color challenge comes up, I try to play along to stretch my designing.  Personally, I think watercoloring makes everything look awesome and the more pooling the better…
cardstock:  recollection/110/ white,  bazzill marshmallow, american crafts glitter  stamps:  stampin’ up you’re wonderful & flower patch  ink:  ranger archival black, stampin’ up white embossing powder  other:  spellbinders circles

  14. Amazing combo of color and sketch, this is an awesome take on the challenges. Funny that you aren't really a purple girl, I picked purple for your bday card because you like blackberry bliss, it muted out to a lighter color in the end.
