tiddly inks challenge #38: monochromatic

this week has gone by so quickly. i haven't done much of my own crafting because i was busy with my daughter's school activities, but of course i made time for the tiddly inks challenge. so we got to choose our color. mine was purple, the crown chakra. i was hoping that working with purple would bring some enlightenment...i realized that i could not make all the things i wanted to this week & be an attentive mom & wife. so i guess it worked. lol. & this is what i made



i used 3 of the pixies from christy's rubber collection from stamping bella. i saw these & LOVED them. & i had to get them...but i feel that way with most all of christy's work. i think that this is still eligible. if not, please let me know. i used my copics & memento ink to get the effect that i wanted. the flowers are all from hero arts. to create the sky i used twinkling h2o. i also used a cuttlebug folder for some embossing & another stamp to make the final layer of my card. & i also used a hero arts flower stamp to create my roses (also colored with my copics).  finally i used a large scallop martha stewart punch & some washi tape that i colored with my copics. oh i can't forget that i used stickles to add shimmer & shine to everything.

when i started scrapping back in the 80's, i had no idea of scrapping stores or of the scrapping world. i went to hallmark & to office supply stores & made all the effects that i wanted. & with this card i kinda wanted to go back to that. so i used regular cardstock & did all the effects.  thank goodness for all the wonderful tools that i have now! my stuff back then did not look as nice as the stuff i make today.

have a great weekend!! & i look forward to next time!
