Retrosketches # 11

 I've been eyeing the sketch this week at the Retrosketches' blog.

                                                                       Just love it!
                                                    The best part is I got to play along. At last!

   Seems like I am on a purple kick lately. The flowers from Life are stamped in Winter Wisteria and Heliotrope (Versa Color) You can't see it in the photos , but I used Patina Glimmer Mist in the background of the Mat Stack. It really turned out lovely. This was the firs time I used the technique of having the droplets fall onto the CS instead of spraying directly onto the card stock.  Somehow I even managed to get an even distribution.


    Thanks for taking the time to peek at my card.
