Spring Flowers

It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges.

Our challenge for you today is

‘V is for Violet’
(Use shades of purple)

Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter.

I found some very pretty paper in my stash from Magnolia Ink which set the season for my card. It’s so pretty with all those Hydrangeas and in a lovely ‘shade of purple’. So I chose to make a Spring card using the lovely Spring Enchantment image from The Paper Shelter.


I’ve printed my image onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin – E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair – E55, E53, E51; Clothes, Shoes & Bird – BV17, BV13, BV11, BV34, BV31; Flowers & Bracelet - Y26, Y23, Y21, Y00. 

Here’s a closer look at the image.


Stamps: Spring Enchantment (The Paper Shelter), Sentiment (LOTV)
Card: Naturals White (Stampin’ Up), Cryogen White
Papers: ‘Sea Breeze’ Blue Vintage Hydrangea (Magnolia Ink)
Ink & Markers: Sahara Sand (Stampin’ Up), Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
Dies & Punches: Oval Framelits & 1 3/4” Circle Punch (Stampin’ Up), Oval Majesty (Spellbinder), Cherish ‘Around the Page’ Punch (Martha Stewart)
Accessories: Flowers & Lace (stash), Wisteria Wonder Seam Binding, Antique Brad & Pearls (Stampin’ Up)

If you haven’t already stopped by ABC Challenges and checked out what the rest of the DT have created then please do so now.

I’m entering my card into the following challenges.
