Tickled Pink Stamp Challenges #16

Good evening (or morning to some) I hope this post finds you all well. Today is Good Friday so I am looking forward to indulging in some hot cross buns in the morning.

This weeks challenge over at Tickled Pink Stamp Challenges is Spring Colours (pastels etc). I have to admit not one of my favorite type of challenges as I often struggle to use lots of pastel colours. Anyhow determined not to be beaten by the challenge I headed off to make my card. I tried a new technique for this card, which is colouring on Kraft. Now this is a technique is going to take lots of practice however I am happy with my first attempt. I think I need some spirits for blending my prismicolours rather than using my aqua painter. I decided in the end that the less than perfect colouring suited the style of this card which I decided was rather vintage. My hubby is convinced these new images from TPS are like something we would find in our old Golden books. Anyhow enough waffling from is my card (all mine not sketch followed or influenced!)

I have mixed pastels colours with my all favorite black. Make sure you pop over to the Challenge Blog and check out the other DT members work, you will not be disappointed.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Saturday Challenges - stitching
Fussy & Fancy Friday - Card or Project for a Girl

Hope you all have a great Easter. I will be back on Sunday morning for my first Magnolia Down Under Challenges DT card.
