Sweet Violets

The challenge at Timeless Tuesday this week is to use purple.  Yay!  My favourite colour - so that was an easy one, but deciding which flower stamp to use - now that was difficult.  However, I decided on the obvious choice - Flourishes Sweet Violets!  The background papers are from the Enchanted Collection by Memory Box, layered onto lavender cardstock, and I have used Martha Stewart's pansy border punch on the vertical panel.  The large image and the sentiment from Flourishes Sweet Violets set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto blending card, coloured with copics and die cut with a Spellbinders Labels 18 die.  The image piece was added with foam tape.

Copic Colours used were:  B0000, V12, BV01, BV02, YG03, YG11, YG13, YG63.

Thanks so much for coming to visit!
