Hey everyone,
Here is my 1st post for Through the Purple Haze design team. I have made 2 cards for this challenge.

If you would like to play along with the challenge then please go to the Through The Purple Haze blog find more details on the challenge and also an amazing competition to win lots of goodies. The prize for this challenge is a prize of your choice from the sponsor.

Here are my 2 cards and details of how I made them. This challenge was actually a bit of a challenge for me as its a different style than I am used to but I enjoyed it and I hope I have captured how beautiful the stamps are. I hope you like them :)

This card is a 5x7" scalloped edge card blank from craftwork cards.
The backing paper is a freebie from a magazine and the sentiment is from Kanban.The stamps are stamped with Tuexdo Black ink from Memento and then coloured in with promarkers and here is a list of the colours I used:    Bird - Icicle, Blue Pearl, Honeycomb
Branch- Umber    Leafs- Leaf Green   Dragonflies- Mustard, Tulip Yellow
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
Anything Goes  Summer Theme  Anything Goes  Country Charm  Anything Goes Stamped Image   Birds

This card is A5 in size and is made from card from Papermill.
The backing paper is just a plain pale pink that I had in my stash. The flowers and sentiment are stamped with Tuxedo Black ink from Memento, some of the flowers are coloured in with promarkers and then layered. The paper ribbon is from lakeland which I have had for years. Then sentiment is on white paper from Tesco the premium extra white inkjet paper and then backed onto purple card from papermill.
The colours I have used for the flowers are Mulberry and Orchid.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
Ribbon and Bling  Flowers  Flower Power

I hope that you have enjoyed seeing something different from me and I really hope that you can join in with us on this challenge. There are some new and exciting things happening on the blog and I can't wait to share them with you :)
