Friday's Flying Colors!!

The Gina K Designs March Release has been revealed and the Design Team did their samples hop so now... we're back to the regularly schedule Stamp TV Color Challenge on Friday!!! Yayyy!!  I love purple and I REALLY REALLY LOVE the new Gina K Pure Luxury paper, Wild Lilac!!!!  But I struggle putting orange with any shade of purple!!  So... that's the beauty of the challenge... it IS a challenge!! I persevered and here... are the colors Gina picked for us this week....

I decided to join all the wonderful Gina K Designs purple toned Pure Luxury card stock together for my card.  I began my base with Lovely Lavender.  Next I added a layer of Sweet Mango and on top of that I added a sheet of the Vibrant Violet.  Topping it all off with the new Wild Lilac which I used my Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder on.  IF you're a purple lover like me... YUMMMM!!!  Hee Hee

My image was stamped on white and I used Vivid Ink, Purple.  I stamped my image twice and cut out the one and mounted on top of the other for more dimension.  Then... I added Melanie Muenchinger's, "Bring the Bling" to create a trail from my butterfly.  I used my purple Stickles to add a bit to the bling and then the orange on the butterfly wings.  Before I removed my Nestabilitie Oval, I added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Dried Marigold, to add some color around the edges. 

I used my Nestabilities Beaded Oval on my Sweet Mango paper and added it under the image angled just a bit for a different layout.  I added a little lace with some lavender ribbon with purple dots and a few coordinating buttons and bakers twine to finish it off.

Be sure to submit your project to enter yourself in the drawing for a FREE stamp set from Gina K Designs of your choice valued at up to $24.95.  Upload your piece to the Stamp TV gallery and be sure to add the tag listed above in the color sample.  Remember, if you use Gina K Design stamps, your name goes in the drawing TWICE!!!  Good luck!!

Have fun playing along and thanks for stopping by!!! *smile*
