Vintage Violet

I am certainly loving Washi and have already made a collection of cards with bits of tape all over them. But ... I looked over and saw my neglected Copic markers. I just blurted out to Washi that Copic is where my true love lies. I have to say, Washi took it very well. I am sure Washi knows that it is still high on my favourites list.

Speaking of favourites ... that would have to be anything from Saturated Canary. This is Vintage Violet and I have teamed her with the Basic Grey 6x6 pad Lucille and the following Copics:
E31,35 and YG93
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Pennys Paper-Crafty #145 Use 2 or more designer papers
Divas by Design Anything Goes
7 Kids College Fund Anything Goes with a twist of Vintage
Paper Crafting Journey Flowers
Charisma Cards Favourite Colour Combo (It is definitely Teal and Rust ... this week)
Digitally Sweet #54 Anything Goes
Hiding in my Craft Room #116 Lots of Layers
4 Krafty Girls Anything Goes
Saturated Canary Shabby Chic (Not really sure if this fits with 'shabby'. I probably should have 'roughed up' the edges a bit more but my OCD alter ego has only recently allowed 'crooked' so 'roughing up' was out of the question)

I am back from my holiday and refreshed after all that lovely sunshine (and food and just a couple of cocktails). Now I am ready to go with this fortnights challenge over at Southern Girls. Our challenge to you is to create something monochrome.
Our sponsors are Marianne Designs (I have used a flower die) and Rhoda Design Studio so that means some fabulous prizes on offer. Pop on over to the Southern Girls challenge site and check out the fabulous inspiration from the other team members. 

I have had heaps of fun playing with my new collection of Washi tape and there is a good chance you will see some more Washi cards soon. I just need to get a few more colours because I only have.... 12,13,14 ..... 22,23,24 ..... 46,47,48 ...... Ooops! got distracted by the pretty colours and lost count. That is the story I am sticking with :)

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Glitter n Sparkle #50 Add some pink
Just Inspirational Die Cuts
My Craft Spot Favourite Technique (sticking bits of Washi tape on stuff)
A Little Bit Crafty Clean and Simple
