Pretty in PURPLE!?

March 8, 2011


I know the movie is actually Pretty in Pink,  but, I LOVE purple and thought Tilda would be perfect in this color.    🙂    I used these flowers from my garden as inspiration for this Copic color combination …



Here’s a photo of the full card:



This card was actually made for an edition of the Ett Trykk magazine from this past summer!    I had forgotten to post it here to share with you, but thought these colors might brighten a very dreary day we’re having here in Wisconsin.

 Thanks for your visit today!

    This is such a beautiful card. I do love the purples you used and absolutely the background around Tilda. Beautiful in everyway, the dp, the coloring and the layout with beautiful embellishments.

    Both your Hydrangeas from your garden and your Tilda are absolutely gorgeous! Love how you got those pinkish undertones in her dress. Stunning!!

    This is just lovely, Mary! Tilda certainly does look pretty in purple!

    I’ve just posted a Gift Pocket Card that was published in the Midsummer Night’s Dream issue of Magnolia Ink if you want to take a look.
