I was very pleased to have the opportunity to be a guest designer for

The current Challenge is to pick THREE from

I decided to create a fat page!

 My first pick was PURPLE...

I have been boiling a lot of beetroot from the allotment so I decided to try using some of the liquid produced to drip on some watercolour paper...well it stains fingers well...
It turned out to be a very similar colour to Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves Distress Ink - which I used around the edges. I also added some Black Soot Distress ink to the wet paper.

My next pick was purple ribbon!

Next I added the verses of Eldorado by Edgar Allan Poe,
 printed on white and matted on purple card and placed over some lacy webby ribbon (maybe counted as my third pick - lace).

Then I needed a knight - this is Ike's Knight printed on a silver grey paper with a touch of marker.

Finally I used my tiny Las Vegas stamp to add some ravens - definitely my 3rd pick!

Hope you will take a look at the other makes at Quoth the Raven -
and join in!

Happy Crafting!
