At¬†Craft Your¬†Passion¬†this week the challenge is¬†Pretty¬†Pastels.We have the fabulous¬†A Day For Daisies¬†as our¬†sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don‚Äôt forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I decided to have another crack at watercolouring thinking it would tie in with the softer palette of the challenge ūüôā I chose the beautiful Breeze in Spring¬†by¬†A Day For Daisies¬†and printed her on watercolour paper.Next I used AquaMarkers and a slightly damp paintbrush to delicately shade her.Bit unsure of my skill level here but she’s such a sweet ,tender thing I don’t think it matters too much ūüėČ I pulled out some pretty pastel papers and pink card to go with her,a trio¬†of my favourite punches¬†(that I don’t use often enough!)¬†¬†along with a few pearls and my new bow die that arrived in the post just in time for me to use o this card ūüėÄ
