so lovely ... purple ice ballet princess

There is a fabulous sketch at Just Magnolia this week which I am using.

I am also entering this into TWO other challenges.

At Theme Thursday the challenge is 'to use purple as one of your main colours'.

Use It Challenges have a recipe challenge: Use a new technique (see my tag), use a virgin stamp (I have never used this one before) and use papers you haven't used before.

Here is my card:

All papers used are from the Crate Paper ~ Katlin collection. I layered them up and inked the edges with purple.

I created the tag by cutting a piece of acetate with my cricut. I then tried a technique which was new to me. I inked a swirly seat horizontally for Tilda to sit on using a stamp from Paperartsy ~ Squiggly Ink: Swirls & Curls 1. I then added some swirly circles using stamps from Paperartsy ~ Squiggly Ink: Swirls & Curls 2. If I did this again I think a purple ink would look better, but I didn't have any which would stick to acetate. On the back of the circles I added some crystal stickles and I added purple twilight paint to the edges with a paint dabber.
The image is Magnolia ~ Pink Tilda Ice Ballet Princess and I coloured her with my copics. This is the first time I've ever coloured one of these images where all the clothes are the same colour.
The 'So lovely' sentiment is a rub on by We R Memory Keepers. I rubbed it onto purple cardstock, stuck it to a piece of chipboard and then cut it out.
Flowers are a mixture of Prima and Hero Arts. The jewelled brads are by Papermania.

Thank you for looking.
