A Passion for Purple !

This is a very different experience for me as I'm in a holiday cottage in North Cumbria, and I've made this card by bringing a selection of bits from my craft room back home. This is my card for the Passion for Promarkers challenge this week. The main image is from a Tanda Stamps set which has been stamped with black Memento ink and then shaded with lilac, lavender, amethyst and aubergine Pro Markers. I've also use my Faber Pitt pens to add some shading to the wizard and stuck three star gems to the hem of his cloak. I've used a ticket punch on the corners and mounted him onto card that's been sponged with Versamagic Purple Petunia and Eggplant ink and finally mounted onto silver mirri card. The background papers are Basic Grey and the sentiment is from a Papermania set of stamps. If I'd been at home I would no doubt have added some more embellishments, but it will have to do.

So we've come up to North Cumbria for a week and so far it's rained, rained and rained some more ! Tomorrow's forecast isn't any different so I don't think we'll be wandering far. Good job the fridge is full of goodies !

Thanks for looking.

  3. So chuffed you're crafting on holiday Sue! Great card too, love the gems on the wizards cloak, nice touch.

    And don't stress mate, if you'd stayed at home you'd be just as soggy, it ain't stopped since I got up!

    Hoping to see more crafty holidayness plus if the weather stays rubbish, google search to see if any craft shops near you, although I expect you already have!
