Pastel hair

This is one of the recent releases from Oddball Art image no 232.  I decided to show you this one for some extra inspiration in case you've missed it.

When I coloured this one I was inspired by Lizzy herself.  I joined her discussion via Facebook re hair colour trends and pastel colours are now all the rage.  If you've not seen her Lizzy has pastel hair so I decided to try it out on one of her images :)

This image has been coloured with ProMarkers and cut out with a Spellbinders die.  Around the edges I've added some pink and blue in the same pastels as I used for the hair.

The pastel hearts were leftovers from when I've been cutting out die banners with my LaLa Land die.  I decided to use four out these around the image.

The backing papers are pain ones from Lili of the Valley in blue and pink to match - I think you can see a theme here ;)

My final embellishments for this very girly card are some tiny paper flowers arranges in a cascade down the right, from Hobby Craft and some organza pink spotted ribbon which you can get from The Ribbon Girl.

I've left the card blank so it can be customised :)

Hope you like my bit of girly inspiration
