Paper Pretties' Wednesday Color Challenge: Purple, Green, and Orange!

 Stamps:  Paper Pretties 'Witch Sophia'.  Cardstock:  Black, Papertrey white, glitter orange, Paper Studio DP.  Ink:  Memento black, Copics, Versafine black.  Accessories:  rectangle Nestabilities, Hero Arts black gemstones, purple rick rack, Stardust glitter pen, CM silver gel pen.

Welcome to this week's Paper Pretties' challenge! 

Our challenge for this week is to use the color combo of purple, green, and orange.  This color combo always reminds me of Halloween, so I decided to stamp 'Witch Sophia' with a paper-pieced purple polka dot (say that three times fast!) dress:

The sketch is inspired by the Sweet Stop Sketch challenge #78, rotated 90 degrees with a little extra rick rack (in purple, of course) thrown in. 

An extra twist for this challenge is to 'Make it Sparkle' so I accented the spider web with a Stardust glitter pen and used this fun glitter orange DP picked up at the Target Dollar Spot:

And I finally found a perfect way to show off this fun purple rickrack -- the Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge #10:  Halloween!

Be sure to enjoy the other Pretties' Gals interpretation of our fun color combo:
