Tiddly Inks & Spectrum Noir

This card ended up  taking a left turn from my original idea - monochromatic purple - but I love how it ended up! Still having fun playing with my Tiddly Inks images, and last weekend I increased my Spectrum Noir marker collection (hello purples!) and had a chance to play along with the SN Facebook challenge & Tiddly Inks sketch challenge.

Supplies: Tiddly Inks Flying High digi; Cuttlebug embossing folder; Corner Chomper; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic; home-made enamel dots; paper straw, eyelet, twine, seam binding from stash. SPECTRUM NOIR MARKERS: 
EB1; FS8,9; PL2, 4; BT2, 4; OR1; CT1,4 

Shiny balloons!

I made the background using several of the same markers that I used to colour the image, pressing lighter/harder to vary the size of the dots. This is my current absolute favourite background technique (as you'll see with my Snarky Sisters card in an hour or two).
(I used the straw in place of the banner)

and the Spectrum Noir background challenge is also open until Monday.

Purples. I need purples. :D I'm glad you added a few more colours, though -- she'd be quite different with purple hair. Really sweet card!

Your coloring has improved 10 fold, my young Padawan! (See what I did there?!) Seriously, your coloring is amazing, Jessi, and I absolutely love your take on that challenge!

What a happy card! Love the colors. I can't imagine this in all purples. I'm glad you allowed other colors to come play too!

Definitely not monochromatic, but heaps of fun all the same! I've not tried Spectrums but I hear that they are wonderful.
