Pastel Christmas!

Scroll down for this week's OSAAT challenge project.

Seems like a while since I did a card just because I wanted to, although that's largely because I've spent the last week fighting a nasty chest cold and not getting enough sleep as a result. It's still around, but as it's now half term, getting caught up on sleep shouldn't be a problem!

Yesterday, I snagged the cutest free digi from Pollycraft, and I was inspired to do this!

It's called 'Penguin Love' and it's available for a short time. I coloured the image with Promarkers and added detail with Sakura Stardust pen, then added some glitter to their hats. I used the sketch at Sketch and Stash which I've been hankering after doing since it appeared almost a fortnight ago! I used colours to fit this time's Colour Create challenge - aqua, purple and white. (The colour I chose for purple is Promarker lilac which I know can seem a little grey on some computer monitors.) I made a couple of background papers using my Promarker conversion chart and Photoshop Elements in spots and stripes to follow the current Allsorts challenge. It also fulfils the requirements for this week's Wild Orchid Crafts challenge which is to use pastel colours.
