Purple, Pink, and Black!

Carol Fox is our hostess this week at Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and her challenge is Purple, Pink, and Black! Here's what she's got to say about her challenge.
"I love strong colours that really pop on the page, so I ask you this week to feature Black, Pink and Purple on your make for the challenge this week."
 If you'd like the chance to win your choice of $30 worth of Stampotique stamps, you should play along. Visit Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and be sure to read the rules so that you'll have the chance to win a great prize!!!

Here's my card featuring Stampotique's Buru ! (Daniel Torrente).

Buru ! was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Neenah cardstock, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut, and set aside. Since it's October,  I'm in a spooky kind of mood, so I grabbed a piece of patterned paper from a 6x6 paper pad by Recollections. It was mostly shades of grey, so Copic markers were used to change the colors of the roses, swirls, and the eye and nose apertures of the skull. A purple glitter pen was used to add the raven's eye and the spider's dots and hourglass.

Buru ! was stamped again onto the patterned paper using Onyx Black VersaFine ink and embossed with Filigree Clear Embossing powder so that the details of the stamp would show. The fussy-cut, colored  Buru ! was adhered in position, the piece was edged with Dusty Concord and Black Soot Distress ink, then matted with pink cardstock, and mounted onto a purple card.

Thanks for visiting today!
