Great Things

Hello Everyone! I am very excited to announce that I have joined the Tuesday Color Challenge design team at The Outlawz. This is my first week, and our sponsor is The Paper Nest.

Our challenge this week is to use at least 3 colors from this beautiful pastel rainbow.  There is no twist for this week's challenge.

Here is my inspiration card for you:

For this card, I chose to use Garden Ellie...isn't she adorable. I am also using two Doodle Pantry digital stamps for this card. The daisy is from the Charlie Daisy set and the sentiment is from the  Encouraging Words set. The first thing I did was cut the frame using my Silhouette Cameo. The design is ID #73381. Then I removed the inside cut from the frame and brought the images and sentiment into the software and did a cut and print. I colored the images using my Copic markers (dress - V20 V22, RV10, RV13; shoes and bow - RV10, RV13; skin - R00; cheeks - R20; hair - Y11, Y13; watering can - C0, C2, C4; daisy - G20, Y11, Y13). I cut the grass (design #56521) and distressed it with G20, but it absorbed so you can't see it much. I distressed the bow frame with pale plum ink and the white insert with barely banana ink. The blue layer was distressed with soft sky ink.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
