SISC #43: Shades of You!

It’s time again for another super fun StampInsanity Challenge! This week’s challenge is called Shades of You. Thr Groovy Gurlz are challenging you to choose your favorite color and use only shades of YOU! Ok, and white, if you must! :) Winters blues? Red Hot in love? LivingStrong in yellow? I chose purple.

I just had to use Hilda for this one. She’s holding her little pet dragon. And if you read my post from yesterday, you’ll understand why this image was so important for me to use today.

The following information is from crystal-cure.com.

Purple is the color of good judgment. It is the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. Purple is a good color to use in meditation.

Purple has been used to symbolize magic and mystery, as well as royalty. Being the combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors, purple is believed to be the ideal color. Most children love the color purple. Purple is the color most favored by artists. Thursday's color is purple (today!).

Put some violet in your life when you want:

  • to use your imagination to its fullest
  • to re-balance your life
  • to remove obstacles
  • to calm over activity or to energize from depression

Pretty interesting stuff, huh? Purple is most definitely one of my favorite colors. And the color’s meanings are so in line with my life right now.

Hilda and her baby dragon were colored with my pencils. I love how they turned out! I think her hair and her dress look pretty cool! So now it’s your turn! What shade are you? Want some more inspiration first? Then check out Ward 2 of the Groovy Gurlz!
