Purple makes me happy!

I just love purple. It's such a charming color. Lilacs are purple, beautiful irises are purple, lavender is purple . . . nice.

I chose to color my image with purples today. I really like the stamp set from Crafty Secrets called Glamour Girls. It's so vintage and I'm all about vintage.

I stamped the image with black craft ink and clear embossed before coloring with Copic markers and using the Spica pen for a bit of shimmer. I used the EK success border punch on two of the corners of the image panel as well as a double border on the next layer. I used another of the stamps from the set on that layer also. The next layer is embossed with the cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The ribbon is doubled with the lavender colored one being looped a few times before adding the button, which was also colored with the copic marker. It's so feminine, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by!
