Not My Favorite Color!
Our hostess at Mo's Challenge for this month, Lisa Cook, asked us to use Almost Amethyst, Bashful Blue, and Elegant Eggplant for our cards this week.
I really have a difficult time using purples. I rarely use it unless it's required in a challenge. In fact, I still have almost full packs of all the different shades of purple card stock I bought from SU! years ago! That being said, I really love this card! Of course, the image is wonderful (I never met an image from Mo's Digital Pencil that I didn't like!), but I think these particular colors work very well together.
I had a lot of fun making the bachelor buttons. I just layered several different punched flowers and secured them with a brad. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch.
I love using the 'out-of-the-box' technique, and it worked perfectly with Alice, having her dress blowing out of the frame. It gives the card a feeling of movement.
The 'love' charm is is from Walmart's wedding section....I've found a lot of inexpensive charms there.
As you can imagine, Alice is at a tea party! The tiny table was handcrafted by an artisan whose work was available at the Shaker Village in Canterbury New Hampshire. (It's a wonderful place to visit if you're ever in the area!) The miniature teacup is part of a sweet little set from my collection of miniatures.
