A touch of Purple


The sketch over on Just Magnolia this weekend gave me a bit of a headache. I had a Tilda all ready to be used and when I saw the sketch I wasn't sure I could make it work.
In the end I just went with the flow, once I put the border strips down, it was a case of it shouting trellis to me so I had to add flowers. I decided the top part of the sketch worked better at the bottom. You will be seeing a lot of the paper it's from Kaiser and I love the colour combo at the moment.
Not sure on the black hair, I think it could do with some more dark shadowing.
In the end I pleased with my end result and its definitely growing on me.
I've had to put my heater back in my room since it was feeling cold and damp not good when you're storing paper and cardstock.
Nearly forgot I was given this award from Kathleen, many thanks.

  11. What a wonderful card! Love the way you used the flowers!
    I find it difficult too to colour black hair, it often ends up greyish. I think you made the hair perfectly, it works so well with the card.
