you're simply the best...

Hello friends!!  Playing along with Dynamic Duos today.  The colors this week are plum and your choice... my choice ended up being brown as you can see!  I'm also popping this into this week's Less is More challenge to use a rubber stamp... but I didn't water color the image.   The Penny Black design team is also playing along at Less is More this week and there is a fabulous Penny Black prize up for grabs! 


Several months ago I purchased the Penny Black wood mounted stamp called "melle papillion".  I just loved the whimsical look of the young girl surrounded by all those sweet butterflies.   I stamped her on white cardstock and colored her with Copic makers in very soft shades of purple (or plum).  The brown comes in due to the fact that I colored her hair brown.  The butterflies were colored a darker plum color and then Diamond stickles were added.  The sentiment is from the Penny Black set "edge to edge".   The card base is Stampin Up!'s Wisteria Wonder... a very soft shade of plum. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Wisteria Wonder; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Stamps:  Penny Black melle papillion (4300K) and edge to edge (30-164); Copic Markers; Diamond Stickles

Perfect choice of colors for that sweet stamp, Rosemary! I've been looking at her for awhile--now maybe I'll actually ink her up!
