Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #13: Purple Flowers

We are on Week 3 of  Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge  If you haven't played yet, now's the time to do so. These colours are gorgeous and will work for any occasion. Here's reminder of the colour swatch:

You can use any medium to create your projects: paints, inks, pencils, pens, stains, etc., as long as you keep to the colours from the colour swatch. You don't have to use Chocolate Baroque stamps to play along but if you do you will be entered into a random draw to win £15 to spend on Chocolate Baroque stamps. All participants will have a chance to be on the Design Team's Top Three list and proudly display winner's badge on their blog.

Here's my card for this week. You'll find the step-by-step over at the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge Blog. To make my background inked a piece of kraft card with Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves Distress inkpads, keeping the edges darker. Next I randomly stamp the small butterfly from Briar Rose Butterfly A5 rubber stamp sheet with Dusty Concord and the tiny straw from Wild Meadow A4 rubber stamp sheet with Fossilized Amber. I adhered the image to the background piece with 3 yellow brads and added 3 strips of WRMK washi tape

The flowers are from Harebell Butterfly A5 rubber stamped Versafine Vintage Sepia and coloured  with Faber-Castell Polychromo pencils.
