Pretty in Pastels...with a twist

Hello there,

It's time to share my inspirational post for the Spectrum Noir challenge over on their facebook page.

The latest challenge can always be found on the page header buttons and if its hiding, it will be in the 'more' drop down.

Here's the FaceBook page link SPECTRUM NOIR

The theme is 'Pastels' and I thought I'd stick with my CAS style BUT (lol) I seem to be in a grungy mood with my crafting so its another grumpy grunchy make lol hope you enjoy it as much as I do, everytime I see her she makes me chuckle lol

hehe this one does make me have a little chuckle to myself every time I see it!  But apologies if it offends anyone, but hopefully you'll all be laughing along with me :D

Here's what I used to make it:
By Sandie Gough
Style: Tent Fold

I used the brand new SpectrumAquaBlend Pencils that are so highly pigmented I adore them even more: 
Black, Opal Blue, Indigo, Grapefruit, Ginger
Crafter’s Companion Watercolour card, Centura Teal Green card & White Hammered card
Collal All Purpose & Tacky Glue
Image – Taylored Expressions, Costume Grumplings

Worn Lipstick – Distress Ink; Cobalt Blue – Archival Ink

I just adore these stamps, they just make me smile 

Thank you so much for stopping by and don't forget to grab your Spectrum Noir products and join the challenge.  We're over on the FaceBook page
