Crafty Sentiments Challenge – Pastel Colours!

Hello! How are things?

I’m here again with my penultimate GDT post for the CRAFTY SENTIMENTS CHALLENGE BLOG and our theme this week is Pastel Colours!

We have a fabulous prize on offer for the winners so check out THE BLOG for all the details.

This super gorgeous stamp is called ORIENTAL – LOLLIPOP DREAMS and I simply had to place her in a blossom filled garden.  I think I sort of covered the brief for this challenge.  If you block out all the black there are pastel colours in there somewhere.

I wanted to paper-piece her kimono but in the end decided to ‘draw’ a design.  Can’t go too wrong with some black wiggly lines and a few white dots methinks.

Colouring: Faber Castell & Lyra Polychromo pencils with a black fine liner and white gel pen
Stamped Sentiment: Woodware
Paper: Kanban ‘Tokyo Garden’
Dies: POLKADOODLES ‘CHERRY BLOSSOM’ - Go Kreate Square Frame Frilly #10 – Tonic ‘Nesting Circles’ – Joanna Sheen Signature ‘Large Filigree Fan Panel’ (cut 5 times)
Others: Tonic Nuvo Glitter Drops – Paper Clay Butterfly

So take a stroll over to THE SHOP where you can see all the super gorgeous stamps available and pop to THE BLOG to join in with our challenge and check out all the amazing designs from the DT.  We also have a fabulous FACEBOOK GROUP where you can share your Crafty Sentiments makes and take part in another great challenge.

Thanks so much for looking and for your kind comments and have a great day!

See ya!
