Double D - Pastel Party

Dear Ones~
I have some fantastic news that I have been so anxious to share with you! I have been invited to join the Design Team over at the Double D Challenge Blog. I will be on team Diane. It's such an honor and my great good pleasure to be working along side all these talented ladies. Thank you SO MUCH for inviting me, Diane!

This week we have a wonderful mood board for your inspiration. The theme is PASTEL PARTY. Just look at this gorgeous board:

And here is my card:
 I love working with pastels, so this was perfect for my first post as a new designer for Double D. This image is Altenew's Peony Bouquette. It lends itself so well to coloring. I used the Oxide Inks in Worn Lipstick. I have been wanting to see what they would do when used to watercolor. I really love working with them, very fun. I just put a puddle of reinker on my craft sheet and used a watercolor brush.

Here are the Ingredients:
Recollections Rose Petals 110lb Card Stock
GKD White Card Stock
Colorbök Green Pastel Card Stock
K & Company Susan Winget Patterned Paper
Altenew Peony Bouquet Stamps
GKD Cottage Garden Stamp for Greeting
GKD Gold Embossing Powder
Worn Lipstick Oxide Ink

Please come on over to the Double D Blog to see what the other designers have created.  There is always a wonderful prize up for grabs too, so check it out. Oh, and thanks for stopping by, your comments always make me smile.
