A Purple Flower — FabFri12

Are you ready for a color challenge today?  Well, Mindy has a doozy for us this week at the Fab Friday Challenge blog!

When I saw the colors for this one, my little stamping heart received quite a shock — there’s a purple in there!  Oh, no!  Purple and I are not stamping friends. 🙂  I even had to unwrap the packaging on my Perfect Plum ink pad to do this challenge, which tells you how often I use this color.  But it is called a challenge after all, so I gathered up my courage and ventured on.

I applied some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the flower and it did not want to photograph well.  It looks like there is only glitter on the bottom half of the flower, but it’s really over the whole flower — I guess it was just the way the sun was hitting the card when I took the picture.  Here’s another look:

I was inspired by all of the Polaroid/Instagram looks I’ve been seeing everywhere these days, and decided to make a frame based on the look.  I just cut a rectangle of the dsp and drew a square on the back, and then cut out the square with my paper snips.  I then popped it up with dimensionals.

Enjoy your Friday!  I hope you can find some time to join us at Fab Friday for the color challenge.  Remember, you get two weeks.  Thanks for stopping by!
