WIS Wednesday - Purple Haze

On wednesdays each week, I spotlight one of my projects on the Queen Kat Designs Whimsical Ink Sorority Blog.  All this month I've been lucky enough to have had the March WIS Kit to play with and I have to say I've really enjoyed working with these amazing stamps.  I wanted to use this stamp once more before we move on to the April WIS Kit, as she is such a beauty.

I coloured her in shades of purple and blue with ProMarkers and added some Spica glitter pen to parts of the image.  The butterfly is one of the accessory stamps included in the Kit and I used it to create background paper.  I stamped it with Dusty Concord Distress Ink randomly on to the pale lilac pearlised paper and three more times on white card.  I coloured the images on which card with ProMarkers and attached them in a line over a strip of paper punched with a Martha Stewart lacy scallop border punch.

I cut out the image with an oval deckle edge nestabilities die and attached it over a purple metallic layer cut with a slightly larger die from the same set.  I then stamped one of the sentiments from the Kit on to white card, added a purple star brad then attached it underneath the image. 

Finally, I added a mother of pearl button with purple ribbon tied through the centre.

Most stamps in the Queen Kat Designs Store are discounted by 40% at the moment, but the sale ends on 31 March, so don't miss out on this opportunity to add some of these amazing stamps to your stash.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit today, I'll have another WIS project to share with you next wednesday, I do hope you'll come back then.
