Dancing in Purples
For this project I used Papermania papers, a Lili of the Valley Ballerina stamp, stamped in Memento and coloured with Promarkers, Two Butterfly Embellishments-both wooden, one with fabric over the top and the other is a Filigree pattern, Silver and Lilac gems, flower petals, skeleton leaves in purple, a large brad, Papermania glitter strips, purple cardstock and paper roses.
I started by colouring the Ballerina in Promarkers, I played with the colour and blended purples by colouring into the other colour while still wet so they mixed well.
Next I mounted her onto purple cardstock and placed her onto a square card blank I covered with purple papermania papers. Next I made a flower for the corner with an irridescent petal with a purple sheen, a velvety fabric petal, then a deep coloured large petal fixed together with a large purple brad. I then added a purple glitter strip along the bottom of the card and stuck two purple skeleton leaves in the corner, with the flower on top. Next I added the two butterfly embellishments and used glossy accents on the fabric covered wooden butterfly to make it shine. Then I added a trail of lilac gems from on the flower to the butterfly. Lastly I added the paper roses onto the top left hand corner of the stamped image card, and two silver gems in the opposite corners.
