Purple Wisteria- Zinnias- confused, me too!

Good morning!  I am so behind with challenges and this last card I made isn't even for one of them!  I decided to make this one just for fun without following any criteria, so here it is.  I was really anxious to ink up this new Lockhart zinnia stamp and to use some of this beautiful Wisteria paper from BG.  Now, you know I am not a purple lover, but some flowers and cards are just great matches for this family.  I started by stamping the zinnia image onto a textured white car stock with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured with my Copics.  I chose these colours to go with the Wisteria paper and I love how both papers I used are a perfect compliment to SU's River Rock. (can somebody please speak to Shelli about bringing it back as a neutral colour, Lydia, are you reading this?)  I used Martha Stewart's picket fence punch and punched the fence out of Elegant Eggplant, crazy right?  Who ever heard of a purple picket fence, but I do like how the whole card turned out, so, let me know what you think!  Cheers!  Thanks for taking a P{{K

    Beautiful card!

  2. I wrestle with purples, they look so beautiful and yet I'm not very drawn to them...beautiful use of the papers, it's nice just to stamp sometimes just for fun!
