Purple & Turquoise Art Deco

Here's the other card I was asked to make for the weekend.  I had previously made the same card in black and red for a 21st birthday.  That was no problem, but this time the customer (or my friend Kerri) requested a lady in purple!  The only problem I had was that the image was on a CD and the lady didn't come in purple!  

Looking at the CD again, I found the image, but in white, so I used my promarkers and coloured the image in.  I was well impressed, I don't think you would have thought it had been hand coloured! As an extra touch I sprayed the image with Crafters Companion Spray and Shine, which enances all the colour.  I used the the Lattice spellbinders die to make the frame and an embossing folder for the background.  I was very pleased with the end result and hope that Kerri and her niece were too.  

I've also added a picture of the first card I made (also for another of Kerri's nieces). It's very difficult to make the same card twice, and I think you improve on it each time you do..  

Which one do you prefer?  


  1. Fab cards Trudi, love them both...but I think the black one is my fave xx

  2. These are gorgeous Trudi, just love that turquoise with the mauve together, the black one is stunning, love them both, xxxx

  3. Both stunning cards Trudi, think my fav is the black and red but not sure now as the other is stunning as well..Hugs Lozzy x

  4. WOW These are gorgeous. I love the image and it works perfect in both colour combinations. The layouts of the cards are lovely and I love all the embellishments and additions to the cards.
