Make it Purple

Hi all, I'm really late in getting this card made for the Make It Colourful challenge this weekend, I've been in bed with a bug for a couple of days. But better late than never, as they say.

The challenge this week is to colour with purple. Until recently I hardly ever used purple, now I'm quite getting to like it!

We are sponsored this week by Some Odd Girl, and I used one of Kristy's images, Roller Mae, on my card.

I used purples in different ways in my colouring....Roller Mae's jumper is coloured in blue violets, her scarf is coloured with violets, her socks are violets and blue violets, I used BV25 to add some of the shadows on the fence. The far end of the field was coloured with BV31 before I added the greens to try and make that part recede some - not sure if this was successful! The hills in the background are made of some blue violets, and I used blue violets and violets to make the sky too.

Images: Petals & Palings, Old Oak Tree, and 2 elements from the Urban Street Collection, all by Make It Crafty; Roller Mae by Some Odd Girl
Colouring: Copic markers
Lasercut chippies: Round Leaves by Make It Crafty
Metal corner: Wild Orchid Crafts
Flowers from my craft stash

Purples I used: 
jumper: BV02,04,08;  scarf: V04,06,09;  socks: V04,06,09,BV02,04,08; 
hills: BV20,23,25;  sky: BV31,V0000,01.
Some BV31 added to grass at far end of field.

Hey Carole!! :)
Wow!! This is just stunning- your scene is beautifully done (as always, but no less stunning for that! :)) and I love how you've used purples in the whole thing to get it all to tone so well!! :)
And guess what... I actually managed to enter my first MiC challenge!! :) Purple is my fav colour and this is an easier challenge than some so thought I'd be brave!!lol Though I did take the easy route with a vv CAS design- not brave enough (or have energy enough) for trying whole scenes yet!! ;) Your colouring has really inspired me to want to improve my own- if I'm half so good as you someday, I'll be very happy!! :)
Thank you for the comments on my blog, too- always makes e smile to see your name!! :)
Hope you're as well as poss and today's a better day,
hugs, Rachel xxx
