Through the Purple Haze--Pinks or Purples!

Happy Monday, everyone!  Sorry I've been MIA for a few weeks, but things got a little crazy around here both personally and professionally.  I'm back, though, and here's our newest challenge at Through the Purple Haze!

Our sponsor this week is Sassy Studio Designs, and they are providing four images for the winner of this week's challenge.  AWESOME!!!  Sassy Studio was gracious enough to allow the DT to choose an image to work with, so I chose Wonder Woman.
I followed the current sketch at Artful Delight 

and will be entering my card over there, as well as in the "Anything Goes" category for the monthly card challenge in the Yahoo group Scrappin' 'n' Chattin'.  I made this card in my hotel room over the weekend while at a family reunion for my husband's family.  I usually don't take projects with me when I travel, so it was quite interesting doing it without things in their normal spots!

Our challenge this week is to use pinks or purples in your creation, which I don't think I realized when I chose this image!  At any rate, I found a patterned paper with some pinks in it that I think ended up working perfectly.  I colored the image with colored pencils, then inked the edges of the cardstock with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Faded Jeans.  The red twine was in my stash, and I used pop dots to adhere Wonder Woman.  The sentiment (from Fiskars) was stamped using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Barn Door.

I hope to see quite a few of you enter your creations this week!  Be sure to hop over to the Through the Purple Haze challenge blog to get linked up, but remember to please link to your specific post and not your entire blog.  TTPH is also having a DT Call, with a deadline of December 31 to get in your application.  Good luck, and happy scrapping!
