'Colours' CJ Entry

As usual I am a little late with uploading this but it is my entry into Diane R's 'Purple' theme CJ as part of a Colours UK Stampers Forum Swap.

I really enjoyed doing it though and took a bit of artistic license and added some mustard to the colourway. I must admit I was a bit stumped as to how to incorporate the image from her rubber stamp choice. I decided after a lot of pondering that I would do almost a daisy-chain of the same image stamped six times and calling my entry 'Purple People'.


  • Printed 12 x 12 scrapbook Paper
  • Cherry Pie flourish stamp
  • C Dee's kids alpha stamp (lower case)
  • Versafine black onyx inkpad
  • Stazon imperial purple inkpad
  • Brilliance pearlescent lilac inkpad
  • Colorbox chalk Ink wisteria inkpad
  • Sakura Gelly-Roll Tiara pen - purple
  • Glue Stick
  • Purple satin ribbon (for tag)
  • Chipboard Letters (spelling PURPLE)

The pages were covered in double sided 12 x 12 printed scrapbook paper. This particular one had purple and mustard paisley-type design on one side and a mustard slub effect on the reverse. I half covered each page with both front and back and adhered with glue stick. I stamped the Cherry pie flourish stamp randomly over the mustard slub with black onyz Versafine ink before adhering this.
I used chipboard letters and inked them to look distressed with purple inks. These were applied with glossy accents.

I then stamped the image six times in imperial purple Stazon onto mauve cardstock. Each image was cut out and embellished with Gelly Roll tiara purple pen before adhering with glue stick.

The alphas (from CDee's- Kids lower case), were stamped in Brilliance pearlescent lilac to spell 'people' onto white card and these were cut out and applied as seen with glue stick. The page edges were inked with Wisteria Colorbox chalk ink.

The sign-in tag was embellished with a small piece of purple satin ribbon.
