Here's their color combo:
And here's mine:
Loving the butterfly stamp set I got I pulled them out, stamped them on scratch paper and colored with Copic's. (V12, V15, & V17) I added some stickles and enamel accents to the butterflies and walked away to let everything dry. Bummer the Stickles don't show up in the photo.
The BFF comes over just about every day :) She came in and said she needed a birthday card and that the recipients favorite color is purple. Sarah, there's a card drying downstairs and its perfect for her. We had dinner and went to work. Who knows what I said but it got Sarah signing .. I want money.. lots of money.. the song is by The Flying Lizards and was in one of my favorite movies ever Empire Records. I put a clip of the part she was signing. To funny at least we thought it was. Anywho that was behind the scenes... back to our scheduled program...
I wanted to frame the painted area and purple seemed to be perfect color however I didn't have the right shade so I took a Hero Hues envelope and cut it down to size and used that. The sentiment was stamped with Memento's Grape Jelly and embossed with clear powder.
We played with 4 different ribbons, none of them worked. I don't own much purple.. not to self buy more P colors. So we made the ribbon. I took white crape ribbon and stamped it with alcohol inks purple twilight with a touch of wild plum. I just adore making my own ribbon. It's exactly the color I want and lots of fun at the same time... messy but fun. I could have made paper with the alcohol ink but I didn't think of that at the time. At least now the envelope color matches perfectly.
