A New DT oppourtinty for me at The Paper Shelter


Morning - Some exciting news ... I am on a new Design team! Today is my first post for The Paper Shelter and the images are just lovely. I am thrilled and honored to be asked to join this talented bunch!
They have a challenge every week - I am on Design team A and we post our (hopefully?) inspirational cards every fortnight. So be lovely to see you joining in the challenges which have a different theme - Currently it is "Shades of Blue." #231
You don't need to use an image from The Paper Shelter to enter, but if you do you could win a whopping $30 gift certificate to spend! But even if you win using another brand - you get to pick 3 digi's - Aren't they fab prizes. 



My card uses The Paper Shelter - Japanese Cute Doll. The paper is from Tilda Summer Blues collection and I mounted a panel onto Navy Bazzill card. I used Docrafts Navy ribbon across the middle before sticking the doll onto the card with 3D Foam. I used some pearl beading in the top left corner - arranged with three co-ordinating Blue flowers called Sweet Petites by Petaloo. I also added some little sticky back pearls and stamped the greeting using blue ink. The stamp is from a stamp set by Stamping Bella. 

When I saw what the theme was I instantly though of the Blue chinese style pottery and this paper.   I wanted to keep it really monotone but struggled to not add hints of others colours, although I did manage not to use all the tones I use for skin to keep her quite pale.
I used these Promarkers & Flexmarkers -
Skin - Linen & Soft peach
Clothes - Frozen lake, Powder blue, Cloud blue, Cadet blue, Storm blue & Navy blue.
Wood - Cinnamon
Umbrella -  Tea rose & Salmon pink.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Julia Spiri challenge - Monotone.
Graph'it markers - Winter blues.
Craft for the Craic- January Blues.
Digi Choosday - Cool Blues.
Double D challenge - Forget me not

I hope you like this card and those to come using these wonderful images from The Paper Shelter.
