Pink Challenge - Some Odd Girl.

This image is from Some Odd Girl and is a digi stamp called Summer Mae. (It is actually unavailable at the mo but there are lots of other digi's of Mae available. ) I made this card to take part in the Some Odd Girl May Community Crop over on Facebook. The challenge theme was PINK. I do love Pink and green together.

The background paper is from Pink Petticoat and is a beautiful watercolour effect pattern from a collection called Strawberry Blooms.  The greeting is from Pebbles and I mounted this on lime green Bazzill card. Mae is also matted on some lemon Bazzill card. The co-ordinating flowers & leaf are from Prima and I added a little pink gem for her necklace.
The paper doilie is a plain one that I bought ages ago - I used a cerise promarker to colour match it to the rest of the card. The background of the image seemed to bright when it was plain white so I have used a little blue chalk from Docrafts to add some sky effect, along with some grass with green promarkers.  

The promarkers and flexmarkers I used on this card are -
Skin -Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice. I used Baby Pink and Cerise on her cheeks.
Eyes & Hat -Azure, Sky & Blue Pearl
Hair - Eggnog, Pineapple Crush, Sleigh Bells & Raw Sienna.
Skirt - Baby Pink, Cerise & Carmine. Warm grey 1 & 2
Top - Honeydew, Meadow Green, Lime Zest & Lime Green.
I also edged the image in powder Blue.
