Pastels?It’s a breeze!

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is PrettPastels.We have the fabulous A Day For Daisies as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t 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 🙂 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 😉 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 😀
