Purples

At Jay Gee's Nook, there is a lovely photo inspiration that I thought I'd have a go at:


For whatever reason, purples are not my color, though I love purple flowers.  So I thought I'd start with this little handful of violets and see where it led me:


supplies: cream parchment, lavender, eggplant and kraft card stocks, Stampa Rosa #M59-804, Versafine Vintage Sepia ink, colored pencils, vintage sepia and tea dye distress inks, Hero Arts S5264 Antique Flower Background, CL272 All Occasion Messages, dusty concord distress ink, ivory crochet lace from Carole, lavender button and pearls, natural twine.
