Sam's Wedding Bouquet - Paper Flowers - PURPLE - BOOK ROSES

This is Sam's bridal bouquet in hues of purple, that is, book paper roses tinted in purple and accented with little shimmer purple flowers and pearls.

I used at least four different inks to get these purple tones. No matter how dark the ink was in its packaging, I learned that once it touches the paper it becomes pink. So, I also used deep dark inks, as well as jet black ink for some of the roses.

Sam also wanted roses made from music sheet paper, so you can see those in the pics below.

For what it's worth, I also found that the music sheet paper is easier to tint than the book paper.
