Hi all, our challenge #2 over at Mad for Markers is a Monochromic (Shades of one colour) now I have been trying others colours lately but just had to do PURPLE for this challenge, this Sweet Pea is ching chou kuik's Red Hearts. I felt like a round easel card (moon shape, using my CM Cutting System) to try and create a nightime effect. Have stitched the Lilac Cobweb Paper onto the Lilac Avenue DSP onto the card, have used Metallic Sculptured crazed paper for the moon. Placed these gorgeous roses on Kaisercraft flowers and used stickles and the larger one. Don't think I have quite got it right so just look the gorgeous bow lol!
A closer look to show you the subtle glitter on her wings and body, special effects on eyes and hearts
Isn't this ribbon just gorgeous so glad the sparkle came out in the photo. Purple stickles for butterflies
