week 172 - Purple Passion

Good Morning Crafters!

How quick does Saturday come around!  another busy week for me and Let's Create.  I had a Create and Craft show on Monday showcasing some gorgeous Crafty Notions products including some fabulous new flake colours and some really useful acrylic paints - did anyone catch the show?  Not sure Jackie flapping a mosquito away from the flake was the best idea!!! flake everywhere!!

Back to the job in hand - Tracey's super challenge this week which is Purple Passion and this is the one I would like to show you

This one is a bit of a Spellbinder fest (I know you are saying that makes a change!)  This would have been ok for last weeks layer challenge too as it is full of different layers of different papers giving the design real depth and dimension.  The picture is a little deceiving as the middle layers actually go inwards not outwards and I have inked the edges with Black Soot so that it defines the layers even more.  I used the scallop set of the edgeabilities to make the decorative band.

To embellish further I have used organza roses from Creative Expressions, a couple of pins and some black pearl glue.  This design could be used for so many occasions.

I have a great day ahead as Mark and I are going to Busy Bees Dabble Day at Sheffield.  Looking forward to seeing all the ladies again and getting stuck in to a great project.

 Thankyou to our sponsor for this week too -

Enjoy a lovely weekend whatever you are doing and don't forget to pop over to the Allsorts Blog to check out the gorgeous Design Team designs.

Bye for now
