Embellish Magazine Colour Challenge With Stripes

  Back with another colour challenge by Embellish Magazine , and this one was way out of my relm with the colour PURPLE arggg!!  So of course I had to try it. The problem was, did I own anything in the colours? Well, with a little borrowing from a friend, and a little digging in my scrap drawers I found the perfect papers for this Challenge.

  Here is the inspiration:


And here is my take on this:




  I added a warming photofilter to the photo to make it work with these colours and really like how it turned out. I just love this page and think purple has moved from dreaded to one of my favorite.  I can hardly wait to move on to the next challenge as they keep me motivated to get more of my scrapbooking done.





  The sentiment is one of the new stamps by Papertrey Ink, Inside & Out: Baby. I wrote the word 'Precious' using Tim Holtz Distressed Stickles Walnut Stain.
The patterned paper is from Stampin Up, and the flower is Prima - Fleur Danseur Releve.  Also used Prima - Say it in Pearls Swirls Cream.  Cardstock - Unknown.
