A colour challenge for Smudgy Antics

Smudgy Antics challenge theme this week is a COLOR Challenge.
You MUST use at least three of the colors in the swatch below:

Gorgeous colours aren't they! I used a Smeared Ink image from the Elementals rubber set.

Stamped onto pale green card and heat embossed with purple powder. Out came the distress inks and I used these to colour in the image, all except the skin with is "au naturel". Tore round the edges and just rubbed them on the pad to highlight.
Then mounted onto green coredinations that I had stamped the hair into the corners and heat embossed these using the same purple powder.
The background purple was first stamped with one of the grid stamps from "Quoth the Raven" and embossed with purple then over stamped with green ink and heat embossed with an opaque powder.
The central band is a MS punch using lilac paper then some home made purple flowers and some die cut leaves to finish. All matted onto green card then a purple card base.

Now it's time to go visit the rest of the DT and see the beauty they have made then come back to Smudgy Antics and show us your project.
