Hello my crafty friends! Hope you've all had a lovely day so far!
It's time for another fun challenge over on the
We have an awesome color challenge for you to try out...
We'd like to see your creations made with those pretty pastel colors that are inspired by this time of year with Easter and Spring!! So get out those soft pretty pastels to come play along with us!
*remember you must use any Elisabeth Bell image to play along...shouldn't be too hard to find one! The only problem I have is figuring out which one to use! LOL!!*
So here's what I came up with for the challenge:
Perhaps some of you may already know that I just LOVE pastel colors...especially the purple hues like the soft purple lavender color!! So of course I had no problem with this challenge! :)
I found some fun pastel Easter papers in my stash that I had been saving for some scrap-booking, but pulled them out to use a piece for this card.
And the very SWEET image that I used here from Elphine House Australia is called Carrie on Trike. So be sure to hop on over to the store and check out all of these really sweet stamps designed by Elisabeth Bell! They are all so very cute!! :)
I have colored her in with my Copic markers being careful to try and use the softer tones for the pastel color look. I've also made some clouds in the background as well as adding some soft colorful flowers for accents. Parts of the trike was colored with my silver glitter pen and I've added a silver corner accent to the image. I found this really awesome sketch design in a magazine I was reading and thought I would use for my inspiration in making this card. I don't always use buttons so much, but the layout made it easy to add them to my card design. I had fun with this design and I hope you have enjoyed it as well.
I think it looks like she just got a brand new trike for Easter, don't you?!
On another note, I'd like to add that this will be my last posting as an Elphine House Australia design team member. I have to say that although I've only been on this team for a short time, Helen and the design team have made me feel apart of the family immediately. Such a wonderful company to design for and I will be missing this all so much! I wanted to thank each one of them for their support and kindness....it really means so much to me. I wish them all the very best.
And a huge thank you to each one of YOU for your kind words and encouragement! I will be taking a blogging break for now due to life just getting in the way and me not being able to have the time to do the things that I really enjoy doing. And don't worry, I'm fine...so please don't be concerned, but I wanted to be sure to let you know so that you don't go "searching" for me and wonder what happened! LOL!
I will be missing you all so much and wish nothing to you but
BIG HUGS AND SMILES!!! :)
