Purple is back ... with s splash of green ....

Hello :)  I have two cards for you today ..... both purple :)

My first card is using an absolutely adorable image from Pink Cat Studio called Fancy Cake Cat.  I have coloured her in Copics :-
YG03, YG06 - cake and apron
V06 - purple areas
YR04, YR65, YR68 - flowers
C3, C5, C7 - Black areas
and of course I have used spica pens everywhere!  although you can't see them on the photo :(

 I used a lovely deep purple for the base card and a sensational lime green under the image.  I found a piece of rick rack (I think that's what it's called ... squiggly ribbon stuff) that matched perfectly (Bonus!) and then stuck some light green flowers on top.  Some little orange diamond blingy things tied it all together.

I loved colouring this image!  It was so much fun and the colour combos you could use would make it suit any theme.

My second card is using an image from Just Some Lines and it's called Little Witch 1.  She is so cute and I love the little cat poking out from behind her.  This was also a lovely image to colour and quite quick.

I coloured her using the following copics:-
Y17, Y38, YR23 - Hair
V12, V15, V17 - Dress
C1, C3, C5, C7 - Hat and Cat
a gold spica pen for the moon and purple spica pen for the stars

 I have used a black base card and then a piece of scrapbooking paper from my offcut pile.  Handcut the ovals ... can't wait for my Nesting Dies to arrive!!!  I ordered a set of circles and a set of ovals .... yippeeeeee!

I hope you like my cards ... I had heaps of fun making them and always love getting new images.  If you like these images you should head on over to the Crafting For All Seasons Blog because for the latest challenge you could win 5 Digis from Pink Cat Studios or a $15 Gift Card from Just Some Lines!  Oooooohhhh wouldn't you just love this prize?
