Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 15 March 2019

  Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "SPRING/EASTER".

This week the Design Team were challenged to "MONOCHROME".

Here is my inspiration post with that theme.
 Well for monochrome and me it HAD to be purple tones!!  I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Crimson Dream - Grayscale" (which comes in a set along with "Far Away Moon - Grayscale" and "Blue Sea Illusion - Grayscale").  I decided to make a "Z" fold card which I have seen Debbi Moore make on the television quite a few times.  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and highlighted areas with my Posca white pen, black fineliner and Spectrun Noir Clear Sparkle pen.

The backing papers I have used are from a monthly freebie from Crafter's Companion from November 2016.

I have finished the card off with a sentiment from the freebie papers which I've cut with a new Desire die, flowers cut out from the backing papers, gems and some sparkly Papermania Glitterations coloured with a Promarker.

The Promarkers that I have used are: 

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Hair - Lilac and Lavender
Butterflies - Purple and Plum
Background/flowers - Lilac, Lavender, Orchid, Amethyst and Purple.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
