Life is Beautiful- Pink at My Besties UK

Today sees a new challenge at My Besties UK. Our option this month, along with the usual Anything Goes, is Pink. You can play along and see all the DT inspiration here.

Of course, this option wasn't too difficult for me- my biggest problem was choosing which of my pink papers to use. In the end I went for some very pretty, soft pink papers from the Trimcraft Dovecraft Floral Muse collection. The Life is Beautiful paper seemed to work particularly well with this image.

The image I chose this month was another of Sherri Baldy's fabulous Fluffy Besties, IMG 36. I would love to be lying in a hammock in the sunshine like this gorgeous girl. I coloured the image in Spectrum Noir markers and simply used butterfly die cuts and pearls to embellish.

The Spectrum Noir colours I used are:
Skin TN1 TN2 FS1 CR2
Hair and hammock TN1 EB1 EB2
Flowers and dress  FS6 CR2 CR3
Leaves DG2 DG3
Tree GB8 GB10
