Numerous Neutrals

It is only recently I have started to realise the power of neutral colours when composing the elements for a card.  That is why my rather depleted stash of card and paper is full of what I previously thought of as boring neutrals.  All the pretty colours were used up ages ago.  But now suddenly I get it, using neutrals can be very effective.  I am particularly fond of the Pink Petticoat's colour 'putty', as seen used as the background for this card.  Hope you like it.

Papers: from the Autumn Blossom digikit by Pink Petticoat
Colouring: a mixture of promarkers, sakura gel pens and watercolour pencils

Lovely Little Lilac

No glitter in sight! Amazing!  Cute characters aren't my thing usually but needs must.  Cards for little girls somehow have to be cute.
