Old Fashioned Girl

This is my entry for Challenge 18 over at Incy Wincy Designs with a theme of purple.

The purple corrugated panel on this has gone a bit darker than the actual thing but I couldn't fix it without altering the rest of the card too much. The actual shade is a deep violet.
Ingredients Used:
Crafty Individuals CI-189 and CI-237
VersaFine Imperial Purple Ink
VersaColor Heliotrope, Violet and Topaz Inks
Palette Lavender Sachet Ink
Purple Acrylic Paint
Coloured Pencils (I used Prismacolor)
Corrugated Card
White Parchment Card by Southfield Stationers
Paper Flowers, Button and Butterfly Sticker
The background for this is really easy and was made by stamped the background design on a square of the parchment card, then inking it with the Heliotrope and a touch of Topaz. The edges were inked with the Violet.
The image was stamped in the Imperial Purple ink and coloured with the pencils. I then inked the main areas and the edges with the VersaColor inks to draw the colours together and soften the effect.
I inked the edges and part of the large paper flower with Heliotrope and Violet.
