Wisteria!

Yahoooooooo, Wisteria is now at Stamper's Dream and I'm beyond excited! I've been anxious to get this paper in my hands ever since I saw it on all the blogs during CHA. I needed me some gooooood purple/blue DP (why is purple DP so hard to find??), and I think this stuff is gorgeous. Thank you, Basic Grey!



The layout is today's Timeless Tuesday Challenge #13...a sketch challenge from Cindy Haffner. The adhesive pearls on the sentiment were plain white, I colored them with a V15 Copic marker. The matted squares and the main matted circle are up on 1/16" foam tape.

Here's a close-up:

I agree...purple PP is tough to find...that's why I jumped all over the Penny Lane (MME) paper when I found it at my LSS. Beautiful card Denise and I love how you colour the pearls to match! :)

Denise, your card is just yummy! I adore the many layers, so carefully crafted and cut to precision. Just this morning, on my way in to work, I admired tree after tree covered in Wisteria. Your card is the icing to my morning drive.

A beautiful card Denise, those papers are luscious!

Emily said...

This is a homerun Denise! I'm a purple freak too along with loving everything that Basic Grey comes out with. So, are you saying that you only need to buy white pearls now that you have all the copics? It really is neat that they color up so nicely so you can match them to any color you want. If only my Prismacolor pencils were so versatile:))

Terri said...

Beautiful watercoloring and I love this image...gorgeous card all the way around!

Doris said...
