Shades of purple


Admittedly, I am not a fan of purple. It’s one of those colors that reminds me of little old ladies. I don’t know why it does, but it does. Ok, so I’m strange - I admit this.
Even though I am not a fan of purple, I love lilacs – love the color and the smell of them in the springtime.

For some reason, I decided to play with purple for this card. I’m not sure why, but sometimes you just have to listen to your muse.

I trimmed the border of this card with my metallic gold pen and used PTI’s Lavender Moon and Plum Pudding. My image was colored with my copics, then cut out and attached.

I used PTI’s Hibiscus ink on the Lavender Moon cs and really like the look of this combo.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!

Purple is my mother's favorite color and I often have a hard time using it. I like this card. Thanks for the inspiration!
