Purple Rain

Well, like buses, you wait for ever and just get on one and another comes along straight after.
So, having never entered Country View Crafts challenge before, I now have 2 in one day!

I slept on my first challenge before I finished assembling it and consequently, my mind would not shut down and I dreamed up an idea to do a version of purple rain!
 It didn't really look like this but I am pleased with how this has evolved. I may turn this into a birthday card sometime.
I started like last time, using gel through a stencil. Next, sprayed some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Rum n Raisin down the page. It was then that that I had the idea to use the Ruby Rainbow stamp, which I stamped onto assorted mop up papers.
After assembling her, I used Stickles for her hair and for the rain and printed out part of the Purple Rain Song. Thought that it was quite funky for a pensioner!
Thanks again Alison Bomber for urging me to take part!


  1. Prince is my idol and i adore most things he records, Purple Rain is one of his iconic hits and you have done him proud Hazel. The pensioner version of this song is Purple Veins but seeing as we are NOT PENSIONERS yet we can play with that version another time lol.

    Loving Ruby Rainbow, her hair and wings are fantastic. not seen her before is she A Dylusion Girlie? More of this please :-) xxx

  2. That's terrific, I love the raindrops.

  3. Ooooh what a fab piece Hazel and the colours work so well, love the stickles for the rain drops - cool xxx
