Love Always

I always seem to colour hearts in red - so this time changed it up with pastel colours!



I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
Crafty Sentiments - Pastel Colours
http://craftysentiments.blogspot.co.nz/2017/05/pastel-colours-challenge.html

I have used a paper from a paper pack (I've lost the packaging and they are loose leaf papers so not sure of the source of them!).  The image is from Crafty Sentiments and is coloured with copic markers.  I added some self adhesive ribbon - I like the floral look to it.  I added a sentiment from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.

Don't Worry Be Happy

These two images are basically identical except for the facial expressions - which gave me the idea of a split card:

PINspirational Challenge -

I inked the background of the images with Distress Ink.  The images are both from Oddball Art Company but have different facial expressions.  I typed out the sentiment on the computer.  I also added some Nuvo Drops to the card.

Spotlight Easel Card

I have combined the spotlight technique with an easel card this time.  Had a bit of fun with this one - I was in the mood for "playing" today!

http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/saturday-paper-a-la-mode/forum/topics/paper-ala-mode-in-the-spotlight-5-20-17-through-5-26-17

I have used a paper from a paper pad.  The image is from Lemon Shortbread and I coloured the image so the spotlight was on the face.  I also added a digital sentiment from Create with TLC, a flower, some pearls, some butterflies and some washi tape from Sugar and Spice Studio.  I double matted both the image and sentiment.
