WOW - Shades of purple

Hello Farm Fresh Family!!  Happy Wednesday, June 1st!  You know what that means?  New releases at The Greeting Farm, a challenge over at the TGF blog and a new weekly W.O.W. challenge at the Farm Fresh Challenge blog.  You'll have lots of time to play each challenge as well as purchase some real cuteness!
For today's challenge at the FFC blog, we are looking for MONOCHROMATIC cards.  What does that mean?  We're looking for cards using shades of one color.  Skin colors are acceptable, but most of the card should be the one color or shades of that color. 
I chose to go with a color that I hardly use.  It happens to be a favorite color of a few people I know and definitely has different shades to it.  I chose PURPLE or actually shades of purple.  I went as light as lavendar to dark purple.  I inked and colored up Creeper Tuesday using Grape Jelly Memento ink and Copics (list will be at the bottom of my post).  Figured it would be fun to ink in something other than the usual black or brown. It didn't turn out too bad.  The pp (DCWV Once Upon a Time stack) I chose made this card very whimsical.  It was the only fun paper I thought would be a terrific pairing with Miss Tuesday, plus it was mostly purples just what I was looking for.  The fun part is the dark purple flying unicorn. I just love how he looks like he's coming in from a flight in the clouds. hehehe...

The rest of the card came together with ribbon, lacey ribbon, flowers and clouds.  I did use a bit of blue in the cloud area to match the pp and I used a lot of Stickles.  Here is a close-up of Miss Tuesday in her purple outfit

Alrighty, now it's your turn to create a monochromatic card for today's challenge.  You have until Tuesday at noon, CST to upload your card or project to the TGF Galleria>Farm Fresh Challenges 2011> WOW> Monochromatic.  Remember the winner is chosen by random draw and will win a TGF digi of choice.  Good luck!!
