Pop of purple

lime doodle: Pop of purple

Pop of purple

Don't you just love a pop of colour in an otherwise monochromatic scheme? Well that's exactly what this weeks Play Date Cafe Challenge is - a pop of purple.



Now I can't take credit for this card as I totally CASED (OK, on this occasion, copied) one my crafting buddy Michelle had made. In turn I believe she got her inspiration from a book by Kimber McGray. Isn't this little guy adorable!



The colour of the balloon was hard to photograph, IRL it's a rich purple (SU! elegant eggplant). Yummy. Here's another angle.



I know this post is about a pop of purple, but I couldn't resist doing a version of this card with a pop of red too. On this occasion I used a bigger googly eye to hide the eyelashes giving this cutey a slightly more boyish look. What do you think - eyelashes or not?


Well that's all for today folks.

This little guy is so cute and I love that balloon! Covering the eyelashes really does make him into a little boy monster doesn't it? Nice to have the flexibility to make it a boy or a girl...

I'll take one monster WITH eyelashes, please! Just makes him look even friendlier, with that toothy grin! It turned out so cute. Love the embossed balloon and paper pieced monster. So glad you could join us at the Play Date Cafe.
