GDT for ABC Challenge

The lovely Vicky from ABC Challenge asked me ages ago to be a guest designer so here I am.  The challenge this week is

A for August – so anything that you associate with August.  Well for me it’s beach holidays …. getting all dolled up for a night out on the town after baking in the sun at the beach all day.  Soooo, I inked up Willow from the Summer 2010 kit from Whiff of Joy.

And, no surpise, I’ve gone with pink again – I just can’t help myself rofl.  The papers are MME Quite Contrary and I have teamed them with cherry blossoms, a gardenia and gypsophila from Wild Orchid Crafts along with their delish pearls and 25mm organza ribbon (I love this stuff).  The gardenia was originally a very pale pink so I spritzed it with Bubblegum Glimmer Mist then pulled the stamens out of the centre of the flower and popped a brad in.

The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set that I got in my DT kit from Simon Says Stamp.  The image was coloured with Copics and the colours used are:
Skin: E21, E01, E00 E000
Hair: E49, E47, 325, E50
Dress:  R85, R83, R81
Shadow: W3, W1, W0
