Purple Hair mmm

In my simon says stamp haul I said I could see a stamp with purple hair so as soon as I got home I decided to try colouring some and wow is it bright. This is my first real attempt at hair that doesn't follow the blond, red, brown, black route and I think it turned out cool. Next I think I will try pink or maybe blue lol.

I stamped Madden on Neenah cardstock, I bought this as a pack of 250 in "Office Depot" in Florida, it was too heavy to bring the whole pack home so I brought about 10 sheets to try. It doesn't blend as easy as Rymans and if I had to describe it then it is closer to Papertrey Ink Stampers Select card stock. I also tried stamping outline stamps and this worked so much better than I expected so this does seem like a versatile cardstock. I don't think it is the same as the cardstock sold by the craft industry but I may be wrong as not tried these.

I have tried a style of cas that Mary normally uses and even though it looks simple it most certainly wasn't lol.
