Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - 16 September 2011

A fortnight has flown around again and it is time for Team A's new challenge.  The challenge for Sweet Pea Stampers this week is "your favourite colour".
Well, for anyone that knows me I love purples/lilacs so that had to be the colours I chose for my card.  I used a Ching Chou-Kuik's image called Soft Goth Night and coloured her in with Promarkers, tore around the image (yes a bit scary after all that colouring in), inked the edges with a chalk ink pad and put some glitter glue on top and left to dry.  The backing papers are various ones from my scraps box and some are DCWV and Henbury Lane.  With a piece of DCWV card I embossed it and then distressed it by sanding.  The card has been finished off with some lace, glass decoration, flowers, gems and Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Make it colourful - Make it purple
Allsorts - Flowers and swirls
Cupcake Inspiration - Photo inspiration
Sparkles Forum - White and one other colour (purple for me)
I Did it Creations - Anything goes
Pile it On - Layer it
