Violets all around

Purple and Green is the theme at Digi Doodle Challenges this week.Please take a look at the challenge blog for details on how to play along and be in the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop.Don’t forget to check out the beautiful DT work while you’re there.

Don’t forget to check my sidebar for this months specials over at the store.

For my card I’ve used Violets from Digi Doodle Shop.They’ve been coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blended out with Low Odour Oils Thinners using a paper stump.I then went back in to the centres of the flowers and added more detail and deeper shading to the middles of the leaves.I simply cut some Nestabilities and Grand Nestabilities Standard Circles and Classic Scalloped Circles from Papermania Capsule Collection card and a piece of design paper I got in a bargain box at my local craft warehouse.The base has been inked around the edges with Grape Jelly Memento Dew Drop Ink.Some pearls and a length of beautiful organza ribbon complete the card.I did my usual trick of slicing a tiny strip off the back of the card to allow it it be completely free-standing without spoiling the shape.

OSAAT : Shape Up
Emerald Faerie Garden : Flowers
My Time To Craft : Punches & Dies
Top Tip Tuesday : Layer it up
Tuesday Throwdown : Shaped Cards

    The circle is a perfect shape for this digi. It reminds me of an embroidery sampler in a embroidery hoop. Such a special vintage feel to it.
