Cupcake Creations Color Challenge 4

I thought I'd gone and lost my mojo ... well I think I did for a while ... Then I saw I had won another Honorable Mention over at the Shabby Tea Room for my lilac heart ... how sweet ... I love to work with certain colours and lilac is one of them ... it's so calming ... so after my exercise class today I was ready to test out my mojo and what better way than with Mona Pendleton's Cupcake Creation Challenge "Purple Hues" ... with another set of beautiful photos from Leslie at A Creative Mint  and an inspiring quote from Alice Walker ....



I decided to create a wall plaque to go with my lilac heart ...


I needed to work fast as the light fades very quickly now ... 4pm and we have to have the lights on and it is so hard to take photos ... But I stuck with similar papers to the heart I made and added flowers, pearls, stamped masking tape, a pretty doily and some glass beads on wire to compliment my hanging crystal, as well as a chipboard frame ...
I'll let you into a little secret ... those hanging crystals were earrings ... there must have been about 20 on each earring ... like huge chandeliers ... But being the crafter I am I see pretty things to adorn my creations and not my ears ...



I hope you are all having a great day ... I'll be back tomorrow for the new challenge at City Crafter ... which means you still have time to enter this weeks challenge ...

Till soon, keep safe
Ros

Hahaha yes you're right Ros it happens to me too now I go into jewelry shops not to find something for me but something to use in my creations is so much fun. Love your idea of the stamped masking tape I'd love to give it a go.
