White and Beige ,plus pale pink and black..613 Avenue Create Dt Card

Hiya ,Todays card I have used an image from Odd Ball Art..I have coloured her on Neenah Solar White 216 gsm card with Polychromos Pencils..I must admit working with the restriction of colours I found easier in pencil than I think in Pen..I used one main pink and vairious pressures on the pencil to get the depth and shading..This is why I love my pencils so much.and the same with the beige too,but to give a bit of texture to the dress I went over it once coloured and did some cross hatching to give it a bit of texture with a slightly darker beige...The background I have made from the new CC Downton Abbey Decorative Lattice ...I joined two together and baked them with craft card ..I then mounted onto some pretty pink dot paper I had in my over - printed box and then added more craft card..
I had to make my own card up with this so I used some of CC Sheena Douglas's 300 gsm card as I could not put my hands onto my white Centura Pearl  that I usually use for this job ,at the moment ,but this card  is good and makes a great card base too ,I then added the prepared decorated card base to it , the insert , popped the layered up topper on with 3D glue gel then decorated it with flowers coloured with SN pens and with craft card leaves,and popped on some pretty gems to finish..The flowers also CC Sheena's Perfect partners,from her very first set ,I love these so pretty, I think they are wild rose but I always think of the summer coming when I use these ..Thanks for visiting :)xx
