SDC49: Purple/pink with black

The current Stampotique Designers Challenge was set by Nellie  - a colour combination that she loves to work with - purple, pink and black. My hands got completely covered in purple ink while creating the background - I looked like I had some strange disease lol.  Welcome to the crazy world of Stampotique!


And while I was taking photos - Mr Bee came by....

Love your purple, pink and black. I'm guessing you have to have some stampotique stamps to join in, of which I don't have!!

Fab photo of the bee, was it recent, if so, looks like you've had some lovely sunny Feb days.
