Our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is Monochromatic Purple. So your creation should be completely in shades of purple (with white also allowed) or mostly purple with allowances for skin and hair on images.
I had this old peanut tin sitting in my kitchen in a cupboard since last Christmas! I knew it would come in handy eventually!
Very tasty they were too, as you can see I shopped cheaply and bought them in the reduced aisle! LOL
Anyhow I decided to cover them with the Craftwork Cards Time Flies paper pad, there are two out the original one, which is vintage creams and shades of purple and sorbet which is in pinks. I went for the original for this one. But obviously the papers had a lot of cream in, all the plain areas without elements on was a sort of cream colour. So I used the Ripe Persimmon and Shaded Lilac DIs from Tim Holtz to colour them.
Look, one of my Inkylicious Dusters gave up it’s life for the cause!! Poor duster!
I have to tell you those pesky little bristles went everywhere and stuck to that blending sheet like mad. Boy was I in a purple mess when I finished clearing up.
Anyhow this is what I ended up with
The top picture on this post is the angle I am looking at it from, and then as it goes round these are the next pics.
I stuck the paper down with watered down pva, and the butterlies I also coloured to match, they were sprayed with Crafters Companion sparkle spray in irridescent. It a) gave them some sparkle and also stiffened them up a little.
The top dangly beads were in my stash but I went over the top of that again with a purple glitter ribbon, the lace ribbon at the bottom was also from my stash.
I have no idea what’s going in here, pens probably.
