Flower Challenge Shades of Purple

Happy March! It’s a new month which means its time for a new challenge. This month its about:

Beccy’s Place is our sponsor this month with a prize of a $10 AU gift code voucher to be redeemed for any digital stamps in her online shop www.beccysplace.com. Beccy has also provided digi stamps to our team and I love coloring up her beautiful “Bees and Blooms” set below.
Our Guest Designer this month is the fabulous Colleen from ‘irishrosecreations’ so check out her blog/Instagram if you have a minute as she makes such fabulous cards.

Here is my card for the challenge.

I love these beautiful Bees in Bloom set and printed them out to fit my 5 1/2 by 8 card. I colored up the blooms with Copic markers in the following purples” V04, V05, V06, V09, and V28.

After I finished coloring the images (during the cold Texas Snow Storm) I started to shade around the flower in blue pencil. I added some beautiful WOW! Embossing in Persian Indigo and Halo on the sentiment.

I forgot our challenge was about shades of purple, must of been the frozen brain lol, so I then decided to fussy cut around the flower. This was my first version of the card.

I wasn’t happy with the background, and so instead made an alcohol ink background on Yupo paper with some gold for added interest.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out both our sponsor and the gorgeous cards from the design team. Have a wonderful day!
