Crafty Creations #36 "All Shades of Pale" & Creative Inspirations #30


By the time you see this card I will either have been to my aquatherapy and be totally goosed or will be up to my neck in a warm swimming pool with my poor husband trying to support me while I go through the exercise routine. Great fun first thing in the morning - I don't think. He keeps telling me it will all be worthwhile and I try to believe him.
Anyway, to the card making. I have entered this card into two cahllenges. It is based on the sketch for Creative Inspirations #30 and is coloured to satisfy the criteria for Crafty Creations #36 which is "All Shades of Pale".
The image is my Penny Black "Water Lily Skiing" and is coloured using Copic Ciaos. The base paper is a freebie from a magazine and the other papers are Basic Grey's Pattern Paper, Euphoria Elysian and Paper Pizazz's Green and their Pink Plaid. Everything else is from my stash.
I would love it if you left a comment or two to let me know what you think of this one. I really value your opinions and advice.
Hugs,
Fiona x
