W is for ...... no not purple

Morning all 

The sun is sort of shinning this morning so hope to get out into the garden 
today. May even get out for a walk !!

But in the mean time here is my card for today. 

It is my tag - keeping with the theme I am using for the 

I started with one of my white tags 

Using Sheena Douglass silhouette stamps inked up the wisteria in purple made the 
branch using a watercolour pencil. Stamped the leaves again from the Silhouette stamps
in green above the flowers. 

Now the background - I used a tissue to mop up the inks on my glass mat 
and dabbed the colours all over the white card ! This was to create a distress look to the background. 

Added a butterfly, ribbon, definition. 

Animals, distress, summer, ribbon  and letter W

I think it may reach the criteria for the following 


I am sure I will be told if I have it wrong - I did enjoy this challenge and the wisteria reminds 
me of my Dad and where I use to live as a child. 

We had wisteria all around the house - just beautiful 

Thank you for popping in today and I am so enjoying seeing your work for the 
two challenges where I am a Guest Designer. 

Well bye for now
