Hello. Today I have a Jane’s Doodles card to share with you that went up on the Jane’s Doodles blog last week. I felt like getting all inky and artsy and so after playing around with some distress inks, this card happened. I’m not usually a fan of purple, but it just felt like the right flower colour for the background.

The background was water coloured with Distress inks – Mustard seed, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire. I then took a Penny Black stencil and dabbed up some of the colour with a baby wipe to create the subtle spots.

The flower, from the Anemone stamp set, was coloured with Copic markers and I clustered some black seed beads in the centre and adhered them with Glossy Accents. I finished the card of with some black ink splatters.

I hope all your Christmas preparations are coming together. My husband and I have been doing heaps of gardening, getting ready for all of my family to start arriving next week. The garden is looking good but I managed to stub my little toe on a retaining wall, and have a managed to crack the bone! I have one very tender, large and purple toe!

Thanks for stopping by today.



  1. Beautiful card Marion! Just the right amounts of everything. Lovely bold and bright!

  3. Very pretty Marion.
    I hope you are not suffering too much while your family is there and are able to enjoy them.
    Merry Christmas

  4. Purple is one of my fave colours but I don’t craft with it very often, it’s really difficult to ‘match’. Your blending and flower are gorgeous Marion!

  5. Ohhhhh…. so beautiful watercolour card!!! Happy Christmas, Marion!!
