Little Claire's - Pink and Green

Well aren't I doing well, after having neglected poor bloggy for days I am now overcompensating and am posting loads (for me anyway!). 

This post is really all about Little Claire's challenge No3 - Pink & Green.  I have made a couple of cards with the Blissful stamp, have had it for ages - probably since last year as I know I got it at Harrogate, but I didn't go there last time or the time before - and not inked it up before.  I am going to use it a lot more now, she is such a dream to colour!

Anyway on to cards, it's always the same with me I can't make one card without I have to make another.  I don't know why, it's just how I've always made cards but it does mean I have loads of them! 

So this is my first one, and the one I'm entering into the challenge.  It's slightly back to my old style, but not quite so many flowers as I don't have a lot of green flowers!  Coloured this one with my pencils, apart from her face which is with promarkers.  I don't know about you, but I can't seem to get a skin tone I like from pencils, any tips?  I have to say though that I am well chuffed with the colouring on the hair, I think its the best I've done.  Also no sentiment with it as I wasn't sure where to put it or what to use.

This is the second one is me trying Clean and Simple again, however I haven't quite got the hang of embossing squares with my scoring board.  Maybe I should invest in some Nestie squares, what do you think?  This one is coloured with my promarkers.  I made the big flower, the little ones came from Wild Orchid Crafts, sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the stamp is from a Basic Grey set.

So this is probably going to be my last post today, as I have to get daughter from nursery soon and then we have a fun packed afternoon at a toddlers group! 

See you soon,
