Gathering Grapes

Good morning - another rainy day but everyday is great to be alive! Had a lovely time creating a card this morning using shades of green and purple ( the challenge for www.craftyourpassion) this week. I love this colour combination and hope you like the results.

The stamp is from Whiff of Joy - Willow gathering Grapes - she's beautiful and I really enjoyed colouring her using a combination of copics and whisper pens. I now have 12 copics so the collection is growing. I backed her on purple card from my stash. I tried to show some shading as Kate (Downrightcrafty) showed us in the copics class last Saturday but need more colours really.
I used a 5x7 card blank and all the backing papers used are from Dovecraft -Kate Knight -aquarmarine - Floral prints. Using my Martha Stewart Lace punch down the right side I then distressed this layer usin a Tim Holtz ink - bundled sage. The leaf flourish and the leaves were cut using 2 dies by Joy Crafts and I added some shades of puple ribbon out the edge of the flourish. The large flower is from prima marketing - Trellis Roses purple mist. The sentiment is from craftwork cards sentiments and to finish I added some puple hot fix rhinestones along the lace border.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -craftyourpassionchallenge - colour combo

Susie - thank you for your comment on my blog - gave me the chance to track back and check out your blog! You have a sense of composition that is inspiring in your cards - I really enjoyed looking back thru your archives. Keep up with the Copics - I am amazed at your coloring with only the 10 Copics! Use your blender pen with the tip to tip method and shade wildly... it is good to see someone else in love with these pens like I am!
