I did another!

I really enjoyed the card I did for the OCC Colour Challenge so much, that I sat down this morning and did this. It was THIS card on Silke's blog, My Life, that inspired me.
It's not two shades of blue, it's two shades of brown, but it's not going in the challenge, so it doesn't matter.

I used a stamp I haven't played with for at least a year.
It's 'Violets' by Hampton Art Stamps. The word 'Violet' is underneath the stems, but I left that off.
I coloured the flowers with Polychromos pencils. Shaded the matt with Prussian Blue Chalk Eyes ink. The flowers are from my stash. The DP is also from my stash. I haven't a clue where I got it from I've had it that long.
Pearls from Crystal stickers (I think). I'm being very vague today, sorry.
I dotted the violets and flowers with Glitter Writers 'Copper'.
Just plain old white CS for the base card.

Thanks for dropping by. I DO appreciate your visit. Viv xx
