Cupcake craft challenge #160–DT card


Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again dear friends.  As promised I’m back to share my card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  This week the lovely Delphine has set the theme and she has chosen “the dark side” and in Delphine’s own words she would like to see ‘only purple and black’.  You can stamp onto a neutral and use skin tones and hair colour, unless you want purple or black hair but otherwise, it's all purple and black!  Such a fantastic theme don’t you think.  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 160 - purple & black

I have used an image kindly donated by our sponsor this week called “Dotty” and I coloured her with my promarkers.  The paper is papermania from the ‘happy birthday to you’ paper pack and the purple card is from the papermill shop.  I used a MS punch for the border and an ek success punch for the swirls behind the image. 

Our sponsor this week is Prairie Fairy designs and the lucky winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to spend in their online store.
