I'll Be Right Over

Hi Guys!
So this week at Mo's DP2 Challenge we want you to "Try Something New"
So I'm working on my coloring with the CarbOthello Pastel Pencils. Now I know you may have seen one or two posts already where Ive used these pastel pencils but at the time I made this card (a good month ago) it was still very new, in fact, this was only my second or third attempt. You can tell that because I'm coloring  on Kraft which is something I have now abandoned for a more usable paper: Pastel Paper.
Anyway, isn't this gal great? Her hair is almost as long as my daughters! 

Recipe:
Image: Mo Manning
Colors: CarbOthello Pastel Pencils
Corner: Sizzex

Face is a little pink...I'm working on it!

I look forward to seeing your projects!

You´re too quick for me - 3 cards in 3 days - I can´t write my comments as quick as you make your cards ;-)
I love this one! All colors and all patterns match perfectly!

Oh she's adorable Dorcas.
Have you tried pastel paper with your pencils? As long as the texture is not too rough they work beautifully, gives something for the colours to key to, just like Kraft.

I think your card is great Dorcas! The pastels definitely look different on the pastel paper, but that's what the learning process is all about. :-) Hugs!
