A colour challenge at Crafty Cardmakers

Afternoon all!  We're having a colour challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers this fortnight and we'd like to see you use the combo PINK/BROWN/CREAM on your designs - Yummmmy!  Theres a great prize from One Stop Card Crafts up for grabs so pop over and have a looksie at the team designs, a couple of gorgeous christmas ones there too!

For this I went with one of the ultra cute Teddy Bo digis, I'm loving these bears!  This one is called Daisy Chain.  I coloured it in one of the new promarker ultra fine sets, this one uses the Hair set which is Buttercup, Pastel Yellow, Ginger, Chestnut and Walnut.  I also used it on the card below and wanted to see how the colours would look on a bear too so yes they work very well so are a good buy.
The dress and flowers I coloured with flexmarkers and promarkers.

Simon says Stamp - Anything goes

This one I played with the hair set again and I know you all lke the close ups so have put one on for you lol!  Must admit the colours aren't one I would have put together but they work really really well and of course you can just use the buttercup and pastel yellow for a blonde, add in the ginger and a touch of chestnut for a more reddy tone or go for the brunette, lots of scope.  I used all of the colours on the hair here to give her nice shiny toned locks.  I again used flexmarkers and promarkers for the dress.  Again wanted to keep it simples with lots of white though not quite CAS its nearly there (just cant resist adding things!)  I simply scored the white card with my scoring blade and used a textured purple card (coredinatons) adding some silver bling and white flowers.

Image is Lady of Opal by Crafts and Me that I put into a square frame with rounded corners and cut out letting the hair flow outside the lines.
