Pretty Pastels

This week over on the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog, the challenge is to create a project in Pretty Pastels. This sounds easy enough doesn't it? 

The first thing I did was to start looking for papers. Remember that I am the QUEEN of digital papers, so narrowing the hunt to just one set of pastels and preferably something that I haven't used before made it a little difficult. I finally settled on these gorgeous papers from a free kit called RoseManor Collection from Raspberry Roads Designs.

Next issue is to pick an image. I should tell you I am totally addicted to Phindy's images. However, I wanted to use a new image, so off I went shopping over in the Phindy's Place Shop. One of the papers is words that made me think wedding, so I decided I needed the Love Birds Wedding. The coloring was done with Copics.

The sentiment is from I Corinthians 13:13, one of the favorite wedding verses. I created it in Photoshop, so  feel free to grab it. I colored some sheer ribbon with Copics and threaded it through the Martha Stewart Linked Trim punch. The flowers were made using the Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch.
Thanks for stopping by and I love hearing from you.
