Here we go with another Double D Challenge, friends. Darlene’s favorite color is purple, so it stands to reason she was going to present us with a purple challenge at some point. Well, today’s the day – Shades of Purple. And when Darlene says “purple”, I do purple.
I’ve used my brand new Dynamic Duos: Foxglove and Ranunculus clear stamp set from Power Poppy and colored with Prismacolor pencils on 140 lb hot press watercolor paper. It came out looking watercolored. Interesting. I’m experimenting with different papers for Prismacolor pencils. This may not be “the one”, but it worked pretty well. The image was stamped in Memento London Fog which minimizes the outline, but it doesn’t completely disappear. Makes coloring so much easier when you can still see the lines.
This old BasicGrey Wisteria designer paper is one of the few pads I have with purples, so out it came, and the Pale Plum card base was texturized with a Darice Basket Weave embossing folder. There are more details in the card recipe at the end.
Now for the inspiration board and the prize for our Shades of Purple challenge:
Head on over to the Double D Challenge to see the team’s pretty purple samples, and then show us your own shades of purple. Enjoy, and have a fabulous day!
