there's a purple 'thing' going on at MAWTT!

Good morning all

It's another one of those Thursdays when I have a DT card to post for 


where do the weeks go!

This time we want to see 

Purple

not a colour I use a lot - not for any particular reason - I think I must forget about it now,
 And yet (as any good Donny Osmond fan knows!!) it was Donny's colour and I had a lovely purple bedroom in honour of that when I was a young teenager -it's funny how things come back to you.  I remember being allowed to plaster my walls with pop posters,( the Osmonds, The Jackson five, Marc Bolan, David Bowie, David Essex, The New Seekers. the O'Jays ..... what a collection, all because the man that my Mam got in to wallpaper put the pattern of the paper on upside down!! - happy days - how I'd love that happy carefree place now, my lovely purple room with my posters and music - and my dog Kim, Radio Luxemburg and the Fab 208 magazine - oh I'm really off on a memory trip here - and cream eggs! - why do cream eggs pop into my mind, I haven't had one for years - and all this because of purple : )

This week I have made 3 purple thede cards  one posted yesterday and  one today and I haveanother  following tomorrow - a bit like buses lol

I've had this pretty stamp from LOTV for a little while and never used it, I bought it because I love tulips - so for today's card purple tulips seemed the perfect thing to do! - and I'm still on the watercolour pencils thing! - I just love them, so quick and easy to use


This is what I did....

Image - Tulips from LOTV
Coloured with Spectrum Noir Watercolour pencils and Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens
Pencil colours - Iris, hyacinth, wild orchid, cypress, sorrell, beeswax, asphalt,
Sparkle colours - inspired violet, olive Jade, aquamarine, clear
Papers - Kimono from Crafter's Companion
Card - Cor'dnations from Crafters Companion
Frame die - Spellbinders
Square cut with sue Wilson noble die
Ribbon and gems from my stash

Hope you'll play along with us this week

Hugs
Judith x

I haven't had a cream egg in years either! But I do love purple and use it quite often on my cards.
These tulips look so stunning in purple; your watercolouring is gorgeous :-)
The layered design looks lovely and it's finished beautifully with that pretty bow.
Big hugs, Kat xx
