The Color Purple

'Dare to...'

A color that is typically NOT a part of my palette!! I participated in a swap with this theme and had fun stretching a bit artistically and creatively. Often I feel that my work with pastels is not too good, but I like this card ;)

Detail view

Stamps are from I Brake for Stamps, Invoke Arts, Inkadinkadoo, and the splatter spots are unknown source. I've had that purple mulberry paper FOREVER, and the big purple-dome iridescent buttons were a recent score at the sewing store ~ I LOVE them and had to incorporate them here for my purple theme!! There are touches of Frosted Lace Stickles on the skirt of her dress, and the cards are outlined in silver pigment ink embossed with 'Psychedelic' ep.
