Tilda in purple

Our newest challenge over on Magnolia Stamp Lovers is to create a project using the color purple and a Magnolia image. The winner will receive either a free stamp from stampingscrapping.com or a gift certificate in the amount of the stamp (international winners). I don't use a lot of purple in my projects, so this was somewhat of a challenge for me.


I decided to use Princess Tilda and color her dress in a variety of purple shades with some pink accents. I found this adorable castle background stamp on My Graphico and knew it would be the perfect background for this princess. What princess wouldn't want to live in a beautiful pink and green castle? I added a bow made with my bow easy and some purple roses to finish the card off.

I love Tilda's pink castle. I think I could live there. Is Tilda taking guests?!? LOL. I have never been big on using purple, either, and have tried it on a few projects recently. Your purple card looks wonderful! Gina L
