Lilac,Purple, and Grey Challenge

This is the card I have made for the challenge over at Creative Inspirations Blog
The Theme for challenge 16 is Lilac,Purple, and Grey .

I had some problems doing this challenge , none of the papers
I have seemed to work together :( Also I dont make
a lot of purple themed cards .
And I had done a couple
of layouts and went with this one .

It turned out better than I thought
it was going to.

And the colour combo is really pretty :)

So here is my card :

Items used :
Lilac Cardstock
Papers by Papermania and Laura Ashley
Brads and raffia from stash
Martha Stewart border punch

Rain, Snow, Shine from TGF
I used Whisper strokes markers as watercolour on her .
Then added a bit of Sakura purple Stardust pen to the eyes and sunglasses for sparkle :)

Thanks for looking :)

Hi Sweetie this is just gorgeous love the colours and image on this one, As for pens I would go for Copics Sketch Markers everytime, but you cannot use stazon with Markers, Memento Ink is the best I find and Bristol Board or Canson Manga Art Board is the best paper to use, hope that helps
