Diva Challenge #54 - Purple Haze

Blackberry Surprise

If purple is your favorite color how is it possible to not have a purple pen, pencil, or paint in the house?  When I finally got around to this week's challenge that is what I discovered - nothing in the house to add purple to the tile.  Well I did eventually come across an old purple ball point - of course the ink had dried up.  Too late to drive out to my studio to collect a pen or pencil.  Now what do I do?  As you can see I did find a way to add purple to the tangle - found it in a most unlikely place - then again I'm guessing before there was purple ink and pencils this mystery purple may have been a favorite of artists then.  The purple is the juice from a fresh blackberry residing in my refrigerator.  Pretty easy to just stamp and blot away on the tile.  I rather like the effect.

Just to have a bit more fun I took another tile and covered it in purple blackberry juice - waiting for it to dry - will tangle and post that one later.
