This months Make it Colourful challenge: Easy - Purple and Turquoise and Hard - Color on something other than your standard white papers.
While I love the color purple and it is by far one of my favorites I just couldn't come up with anything that I would have liked in that color scheme quickly. (I'm sure I could have come up with something if I could squeeze an extra hour out of a day and an extra arm out of my body. Yeah, it's been one of those months.) Anyway, I decided to forgo the easy challenge and create for the hard challenge.
I love steampunk so I went and chose the Metal Flowers digi stamp from Make it Crafty.

I wanted to use in the creation a mixed media altered Molekine cahier journal. It took me a few print outs to figure out the size and placement of the image. Once I figured that all out I cut a piece of Recollecions Clocks paper and ran it though the printer. With all the text and images on the paper I had to often refer back to one of my scrap print outs to know where to color. It definately was not easy but I am happy with the end result.
To color the paper I used: Tim Holtz Distress Stain - Antique Linen, Prismacolor Colored Pencils, Twinkling H2Os - Ginger Peach, Golden Fluid Acrylic - Iridescent Silver, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous "Artist" Stamp, and Judi Kins Gold Detail Embossing Powder.
