A Passion for Purple

Do you have a passion for purple?  If you do, it's your lucky week!  The new Squigglefly Challenge this week is to use purple passionately, along with a Squigglefly digi.!!

I colored this cutie-pie of a digi image with my purple Copics.  The image is called Baby Upside Down by the very talented Fawn Palmer.

After coloring the image, I fussy-cut it and popped it onto a diecut lacy circle, cleverly inked with a coordinating purple.  the box, which will hold treats and serve as a favor for a baby shower,is from a leftover die cut.  It stands about 4 inches tall.

I inked all the edges with Tim Holtz Distress ink and adhered a border of lace on the top.  I wanted my image to pop, so the only embellishment I use on the front was a line of adhesive jewels.

The top of the favor box, however, is a different story!  I went all out with lots of purple flowers, since everyone will see the top while the favors are sitting on the table.

Here's a shot of my finished box.  I like this one, so I know that a table full of twenty or so of these favors, all sporting Fawn's digi image, will look fabulous!

You'll find all kinds of inspiration to get your creative juices flowing over at Squigglefly Challenge blog.  One random winner will get a free digi of her choice, so have fun with the color purple, and happy crafting!!
