Purely Purple Paperartsy

I wanted to make something different today but the inspiration wasn't there - so - surprise, surprise, I did a tag!

Coloured it with dusty concord ink and a touch of chipped sapphire round the edges, spritzed it with a dusty concord/perfect pearl reinker mix and stamped this gorgeous Paperartsy stamp twice in black archival ink and the fine text (also Paperartsy) in black DI.  In real life, the background is too dark, if I had thought of it in time I'd have sprayed it with some of the marshmallow glimmer mist, but there you go, hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Added a petaloo flower which I painted with watered down inka gold violet paint ("goop" as Lin and Leandra call it) and added the idea-ology to the centre.
