Peyton in Purple, 2 in 1 !!!

Hi Bloom Girl fans!!! Today I have a double whammy for you, a two for one project with Ms Peyton! So grab a cup of coffee or tea, because it is going to be a long one!
Here's one using the Scrap Africa Mood Board. It also happens to be one of the Fall trends according to Pantone!

And here's 2 using the  Sept Prima PPP 
Now there's some explaining to do. First you need to stamp your girl on some nice Bloom Girl watercolor paper
Next you need some sharp scissors and an Xacto knife
Cut the horns out doing it carefully so you'll be able to use this sweet girl on her own!
I carefully cut the spider web here!
Next you need to paint a canvas with black gesso
After it dries you can stamp away.  I'm using a crackle stamp with gold embossing powder
Then using mica powder transform your canvas into a purple heaven. It won't affect your embossed work
I hand painted The tulle flowers using magicals for the mustard color in the palette. 
For the title of my project I chose Julie Nutting Halloween stamp and recycled the packaging from my crackle stamp to use the Kraft color of the PPP 
I love it when I can upcycle!
I also decorated My wood easel with Sandra Evertson's new Dresden trims in gold!
It's all in the details!
Now for the LO
I'm using a white cardstock as the base
I wanted to change the cardinals color and made a research on purple birds. There were so many but I settled for this cute guy as my inspiration 

I used several colors of Gelatos to mimic nature
And here are some details for you!

The flowers cover nicely the gap where the horn used to be

I'm also using a real purple bird for the photo of my page   Can you spot the bird feeding on a berry found on Peytons hair!

I hope I have given you more options into using these gorgeous stamps!
And all those fab purple mood boards out there!

As always lovely to have you here!
