Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Pretty Pastels

It's Friday so I'm here to share my latest DT make for Graph It colouring challenge blog, pop over to the main blog to see all the details and inspiration. Don't forget to join in too!!

I really enjoyed this challenge as those of you who know me know I usually colour bright, bold colours so I had to rein myself in a bit to colour pastels! I used this pretty girl character from Candy Doodles collection.   I created a simple white background using the fabulous fencelanterns from the Doobadoo range as well as some pastel coloured flowers, gems & Candi from my stash.

The Graph It colours I used are -
Skin = 4120, 4135, 4145, 4150 & 3120
Hair = 4150, 5140, 6160 & 3190
Shoes = 5115, 5120 & 5130
Jeans = 9100, 9102, 9103 & 9105
Top/hairband = 4110 & 1210.

I also used my blender with all combinations to lighten and blend where necessary.

Here's some close ups - 

I must try to colour pastels more often as I really love the look of this card. I've never gone over the top with papers etc. I think I use all my energy colouring the image that I forget about everything else! BUT I like using an image this way as I think the white space can be used to great effect at times.

Hope you like this - don't forget to pop in to our Facebook group, the DT are always about to help with your colouring questions - Graph It Markers we love seeing your creations too.

I'm entering this into the following challenges -

Nice job with the pastel colors. I know exactly what you mean - most of my cards have the bold, bright colors on them so it is a bit of a challenge to go softer. Really lovely card. Very glad you joined us this week at ATS&M.
