Purple Fest

I'm sitting here with a fever and a sore throat feeling like a big pile of poop.  This is not a good thing.  Damn MD I worked with last week was sick as all get out and breathed his germs on me.  Sh*t!!!  Hope that my body doesn't succumb too badly!

The good news is, I'm looking outside and at this very moment, the sun is out.  If it's still out when I get done writing two posts, good things will happen.  Remember a while ago I told you I was going to do a black and white glitter Dupe Off?  Well I've been waiting for the sun to do it.  Today may be the day.  Cross your fingers.  If the sun cooperates, Dupe Off will post on Friday of this week.  So stay tuned for that!!!

The next two posts will be sunless.

Since I'm not feeling good, let's just get on with it ok?

Here's the silly bottle shot.

This is Bettina Purple and Estee Lauder Bete Noir.  I started with Purple and an accent of Noir. Here are the starting shots.

Even though my camera was being nice and showing this as purple, it's not quite the right purple.  The Noir is a dark purple shimmer-this looks blue.

I next stamped with the opposite color using Cheeky jumbo plate 8 Princess Charming.  Here is that step.

I finished this off with my funky as always.  Here are the results.

I am totally loving this one.  Had the sun been out, I might have added some sparkle. But this is gorgeous all by itself.  Yet again, I did not notice the cat hair until it was too late!  I hate the shedding season!

Now I'm off to lie down and be sick.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
