Fab'n'Funky Challenges #160 - Pastel Colours

Hi Crafting Lovelies,

Well, that's been a quick week!  We are back at Fab'n'Funky Challenges with a brand new theme for you today.  However, we just want to thank everyone for entering our last challenge - Flower Power.  What an overwhelming response.  Flower power was certainly flowing in craft land last week!

Now onto our current challenge - the wondeful Sue (you might know her better as Sue - Bearhouse!) is our host and we are sponsored by the one, the only Saturated Canary.  *insert squeal here*  My absolutely favourite digi company - if we are allowed to have favourites!  Okay, I won't keep you in suspense any longer, our theme is...

Pastel Colours

Simples!  Just use a pastel colour palette for your project and link up to be in with a chance to win a fab prize from Saturated Canary

The team were so lucky to be able to choose a digi from Krista's amazing collection and I chose Vintage Violet.  She is just too cute!  And here is my card...


My cardstock is all Hunkdory Adoreable Scorable and I embossed the blue with Spellbinders M-Bossabilites Dainty Dots.  I added three stripes of the green and then layered the pink at an angle with foam pads.  My image was cut with Spellbinders Grand Rectangles. 

I used Flexmarkers and ProMarkers to colour Violet up and used these colours - Ivory, Vanilla, Satin, Blush, Dusky Pink, Pale Blossom, Pink Lavendar, Lemon, Soft Lime, Soft Aqua, Glacier Blue.  I've actually lost my list but i think this is the full set of colours used.  This is the first time I've tried using Ivory and Vanilla for blonde hair but I really liked the result.


Unfortunately, my camera skills haven't shown up the shading too well.  It is very subtle.  I added Glossy Accents to make her glasses shine.  My sentiment was stamped from that great set that I can't remember where I bought!  I used Spellbinder Framed Tags One to cut it out.  My gems are from Create and Craft.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Digital Tuesday Challenge #199 - Birthdays
The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog #38 - Pretty Pastels
Sweet Stamping Challenge Blog - Mother's Day or for a Special Lady

I hope you can join us in our Pastel colouring challenge.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
