Thank you for joining me today for some inspiration. You have joined me from the lovely Mercia Poree. Her creation this week is nothing but inspirational. I had the pleasure of meeting and spending some time with Mercia at Onstage Local @ Gold Cost this year. She is a lady of many talents and if you live in her area, check out her classes/workshops.

Our challenge this week was to use the following colour combinations. 86_artful stampers team challenge hop 23052016

I’m love blue and in any shade but purple!

I know lots of people who are passionate about purple. I don’t think I know of a colour that seems to attract such a passionate following like purple. I know it is the colour of royalty but ….

So hope you like my creation this week.  But before we peek, I just want to let you all know that:

1. I have CASED the concept and Technique (Bokeh) for this card.

2. I was inspire be the video presentation of the lovely Bobbie Crouch.
