TIO"T" Day #74

This week we were challenged with a sketch. You can see the sketch and what the rest of the DT created at Follow Your Heart.

When I saw this sketch I grabbed Go Green from the Elisabeth Bell Sampler Edition #5 exclusively for SCACD. She kept telling me when I was grabbing colors that she was feeling very pink and purple, so I listened. Since one of my all time favorite papers is the Kaisercraft Lilac Avenue, it was easy to bring things all together.

I used Flowersoft in Fuchsia for the flowers both on her bonnet and in her hands. For the spray on the side of the image, I used Kaisercraft pearls and Flowersoft in a custom mix I made with Baby Pink and Lavender. That is one of the wonderful things about Flowersoft. Not only do they have great pre-mixed colors, but I can make up my own with the solids!
