Purple Power

Purple Power - My team is up the this fortnights challenge at The Sweet Pea Stampers. Our challenge is Purple Power. We have 2 winners, each  could win a rubber stamp of their choice from Lynn at Sweet Pea Stamps.

One of the stamps can be won by using any image. To win the second prize, you must use a Sweet Pea image. The images are all so beautiful, so come on and show us your Sweet Peas!

 I used digi Bess by Elaine Cox. Also available in rubber. Also in sheet 15 Fairy portraits.

I colored Bess with Copics. The image was so lovely that I didn't want to cover up anything with glitter.

I made my flowers using the Posy SB die and Concord Grape distress ink. I used a pearl for the center of each flower.

My butterflies are made with a MS punch. I punched it with dark and light purple card stock. I then cut the light purple butterflies apart and bent their wing upward, gluing them over the darker purple. I added some tiny pearls for the bodies.

My sentiment is SU, as is the punch.
