Delightful Wednesday – PURPLE!

Hello there! Me again! How is everyone?

It is Delightful Wednesday on the DIGITAL DELIGHTS BLOG today and I am sharing the first of my projects to feature the colour PURPLE which Sandy and I chose as our colour for May.

Now I have been dying to colour up this little beauty, the fab-u-lush STEAMPUNK TASHA in fact this card was completed a full 2 weeks before it was due that’s how keen I was!! I absolutely adore steampunk but never really get a chance to incorporate it into a design so I grabbed my chance with my project today.
I ended up making a DL card, which is another thing I rarely do, and was able to use some steampunky dies and a fab grunge stamp from Tim Holtz! Stamping is yet another thing I hardly ever do so this really did turn out to be a card of rarities!! J

Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Pin Dot Ovals’ – Spellbinders ‘Plain Circles’ and ‘Inverted Scalloped Circles’ - All Occasions ‘Clock and Cogs Set’
Colouring card: Neenah Solar White
Paper/Card: Stash Stuff
Colours used: Skin: 92, 89, 31, 32 + 28 - Purples: 41, 36, 38 - Yellows: 82, 87, 83, 85 - Black; 99, 98, 97, 96 - Glass: 46
Others: ‘Splatter’ stamp by Tim Holtz – Wild Honey DI
