GC35 colour challenge: purple gold and green

This week the challenge at gingersnap is Purple, gold abd green. As this month is being sponsored by Hearts in Touch I decided to use one of their stamps for my DT piece.

I felt that this tree image worked well with the colour scheme, and to achieve the colour effect I inked the stamp with whispers brush markers, using to shades of purple for the background, to try and achieve a wintery sky colour. The baubles are done with gold liquid pearls. I love this olour scheme and glad I tried it out for a christmas card.
