Deep Purple

Only a few more days left to get the Free with Three set "Tropical Windows" for FREE! :) Here I paired this popped up a flower image from the set (which I inked up with Almost Amethyst and Lovely Lilac markers before stamping) with "Inspiration Mosaic". I took the small square outline from the mosaic set and stamped 4 more times to overlap the grid and create more little facets, then I colored with several shades of purple Copics, isn't that pretty using different colors to fill in the squares, as if the colors are blending to create a new color when they intersect? Mat is 4 x 5 1/4" Lovely Lilac, edged with black marker and card base is Almost Amethyst. A very simple card!

Have a blessed Sunday! New Gina K Sneak peeks start tomorrow!!

Wow, this is gorgeous and rich with colour! I cannot believe how many ideas you have done with this big stamp of squares. I would have looked at it and scratched my head. You are amazing! thanks forthe inspiration.

Purple is my favorite color, and I love how you brought the various shades together---which isn't easy in the purple family. This is beautiful, Melanie!
