Just Because

Hi Guys!
Just a quick little post for you today. I'm featuring the work of Marianne D today, she does real funky characters. I think of them as "Lili Of The Valley with attitude" lol
I was playing with my pastel pencils on cream colored pastel paper and have to say that I prefer a darker color background. This didn't come out near like I envisioned but oh well, live and learn. Whilever I have to buy "muli-colored" packs of pastel paper I just have to suck it up and color on all shades, it would be too expensive to only use the sheets I like.

Image: Marianne D "Lazy Daisy"
Colors: Carbothello Pastels
Papers: MME "Hattie"
Dies: Spellbinders, Sizzex

Hey, by the way, I don't know if you've been by Bunny Zoe's store lately but let me just show you a few sneak peaks of the latest goodies that have just arrived:
New 6x6 paper packs:

Love these farmy kinds of flowers.... I could totally DO these!

And who would've thought it? Tilda has her own magazine, Move over Oprah! lol

Have a great day!

Hi Dorcas. Your card looks just fine to me, whatever colour you have used as a base. A cutie.

Tracy said...

Seems like the lighter paper lets more of the papers texture come through the pastels. What do you think? Regardless the image is adorable. Looks like she's got that chair broke in just right. :-) Hugs!
