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 


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

Lovely card...I love purple and the must love tulips when you live in Holland. Maybe you are going to use more purple after this did a great job using it.

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
