The Flower Challenge #54 Colour Shades of Purple


It's time for the next challenge, we are using shades of purple for this one but you can do natural leaf colouring and centres but try and stay with the purples we are asking for for this challenge.

Also remember you need to mention our challenge when you do your post and if possible add
the Challenge badge.
 We are using digital images from Beccy's Place I decided to use one of Beccy's freebie images.


This beautiful freesia was just so beautiful to work with. I printed it up as light as I could manage on my computer and went with a quite enlarged version.


I originally coloured with the flower cup in purple and the petals and closed bud in the background in a very bright pink colour. The purple cups are copic only. I then went over the pink colouring with a range of purple pencils, slowly and lightly as I built up the purple colour.

I was really pleased with how the the leaves turned out to. I then die cut using a Honey Bee 
die that gives the outline an old parchment look. Added a lilac layer slightly larger then finished off with a purple layer and the 'Beautiful' die cut and sequins.

Thank you for coming to have a look, Its now time to go check out what the Design Team has been up to on The Flower Challenge Blog and our Guest Designer Colleen Balija who makes the most amazing and inspiring cards. So so much beauty.

See you all again soon.
