All things Amethyst........................

Hi everyone

Well it's a new month and here I am with the inspiration post for the Graph'It Marker Colouring Crazy Challenge!! It's all about the colour purple this challenge and I for one LOVE purple, so I was very happy to do a colour challenge.

I made an 8x8 card and I chose to use an Aurora Wings image called 'Flower Ballerina' and she is just so beautiful. I have had this image for a while and I have seen some AMAZING colourings of her, but once again, I decided to bite the bullet and colour her myself. I'm not saying she's anywhere as near as good as i have seen, but I was immensely pleased with her.

Skin:  4120, 4155, 4170
Hair: 1210, 1230, 1270, 3110
Dress & Shoes: 6130, 6140, 6165

I used a paper from Maja Desin, Vintage Summer collection - which is a big deal for me as I have a wide selection of these papers but they are sooooooooooo pretty, I just take them out, stroke them and put them away again safe. This one I chopped up! I don't know how I will sleep tonight..........................

The die I cut out the image with is a Spellbinders and it is called Detailed Scallops and whilst still in the die I went over the edges with Milled Lavender Distress Ink.

The ribbon, flower ribbon, doily and flowers are all from my stash. 

Don't forget to pop on back to the main challenge blog to see the rest of the Design Teams inspiration. Remember you don't need to use Graph'It Markers to join in the fun with us, just as long as you stick to theme! 

See you soon
