Playing with Purples


At the Play Date Cafe this week, we were treated to a mystical scheme of purple, lavender and cream. You can't help but make a romantic style project with these colours.

As is the recent norm for me, I rummaged through my scraps box until I found the right shades and got to work on punching, piercing, stamping and die cutting. The sentiment is Hero Arts and I haven't a clue about anything else haha. Kept the style as clean and simple as I could with just a few tantalising embellishments.

That's absolutely gorgeous, Paul. I love purples anyway but these go so well together and the fonts on that verse are great. I have that verse in a couple of stamps, but not in those fonts.
