Springtime Pastels

Good Morning Bloggers
Happy Tuesday
that means its time for another challenge at
and this weeks challenge is


I chose the oh so sophisticated
and decided to have my first attempt at a no-lines image 
(I did this by taking the image into Word & lightening the image before printing)

I coloured with my Pro Markers (list of colours used below), as usual, and added Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen to her eye shadow, lips, shoes and gorgeous feather, popping a teeny white flat back pearl onto her hat. I darkened her lovely long eyelashes with a HB pencil.
After die cutting her using a nestie, I coloured the edges with a combo of pale green and pastel pink chalk. I also used the pastel pink chalk on the egdes of the other die cut and the backing paper, both of which are available to download from Polkadoodles
Not only is this my first no-line card its also the first card on which I have used paper straws. I added paper roses, pearl strands, a mulberry paper leaf and a couple of beaded hat pins. I chalked the edge of a small paper doily and added flat back pearls round the edge and to corners of my finished card

I hope you will pop along to the main challenge blog to see my fellow Design Teamies makes and join in this weeks challenge

Happy Crafting
