1st Design Team Submission

I'm guessing that by now you are aware that I'm on the design team for Crafty Muse. Their challenge this week is to create something using the colour purple. This was so hard for me considering purple's my favourite colour!!! LOL

So, what did I do?

Using images from Crafty Muse, I made this card with Millie Rose Dots which I watercoloured using my bush markers. I covered some card in purple star paper and tied some ribbon on the left. I stuck Angelique and the sentiment (made using WordArt) before adding some diamond Stickles to Angelique, the sentiment, the ribbon and the stars.

I thought this card might make a perfect invitation for a little girl's party.

My second offering is this using sitting down Angelique.

Here's how I made it:

I took a piece of mountboard and cut it large enough to fit a notepad, pen and clip onto. I covered it in the same star paper as the card and inked the edges. I mixed blue, red and white acrylic paint to get the right shade and covered the front of the notebook. Sitting down Angelique was printed onto SafMat and put on the bottom then the notepad was stuck using wet glue. I punched holes in the mountboard using my crop-a-dile to thread ribbon through to add detail to the pad, to hold the pen and to be able hang it all up. The clip at the bottom is stuck using hot glue and can hold vouchers, extra notes and more. This could also have magnets stuck on the back (instead of the ribbon) for putting on a fridge and using as a shopping list/voucher centre.

Thanks for looking.

Take care,
Love and hugs
