Colour Purple

Gosh, here I am blogging again for the second time today!  
This time I decided I would play along with Wicked Wednesday where the theme this week is "The Colour Purple".

I was going through my stash of patterned papers this morning when I came across this one which I bought a number of years ago and was saving for something special (?).  I have always liked the bright flowers against the sunny yellow background and thought is would be perfect for the purple theme.

I stamped "Every Girl and Dog" onto ivory cardstock, colouring her with Prismacolor pencils, and adding a little bit of glitter with Gel pens to her collar, waistband and shoes.  A piece of washi tape was added for them to stand on and for overall balance before both 'Girl' and 'Dog' were fussy cut and popped onto dimensionals.  With just a smidgen trimmed from the sides of the flowers, it allowed a co-ordinating backing to be added which in turn leaves a very narrow border.

Happy Crafting!
