A different take on Perfect Plum

Now, I'm a lot happier with this colour combination of Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzaz and Pretty in Pink, a lot more 'me' yesterday's one.

I found this colour combination on The Colour Dare's blog and thought it was really pretty, hope you like it.  It is another watercoloured image, a very femenine image of a little girl on a swing.  I used a combination of Stampin' Write markers and watercolour pencils to colour her in which seemed to work well, I thought perhaps one medium may bleed into the other one but it well very well I'm pleased to report.

 Decisions, decisions, this is the cardstock in all three colours plus the coloured image.
 I've changed plan already here as you can see!  I opted to introduce the pear pizzazz in the form of the ribbon, and just left the pink in the coloured image.

Here is the final result, quite different from yesterday!

What I used:

Card:  Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla, Watercolour paper

Ink:  Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Certainly Celery Stampin' Write markers, Basic Black inkpad.

Stamp Sets:  Basic Phrases, A Kind Word (retired)

Tools and other fun stuff:  Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Pear Pizazz poly-stitched ribbon, Scallop Border punch, Word Window punch, watercolour pencils, aquabrush.
