Pretty in Pastels Challenge

Hope everyone having a good day, I am being a bit busy with posts today, as all my DT work seems to be due today, lol
This post is for the Paper Crafting Journey Challenge................Pretty in Pastels Challenge.
This time we were given a couple of images to choose from from the very talented Kenny K ,
and the image I decided Finally, after much indecision was ..............It wasnt me! Digi.

So okay, "It wasnt me", from a kid, now is the kid telling the truth or are they trying to wriggle out of trouble? Can you tell I'm a Mum? lol. So I decided that actually, for once, this kid was telling the truth, which left me with............ Okay whats she telling the truth about?
So off I trot......... Hmmn, front room, to use pastel colours, in the wallpaper, and puppy in trouble? Okay, so why's the puppy in trouble instead of the girl? Hmmn. White carpet and paint!!

This card is a real amalgamation of digital, and physical crafting. Digital Image, Paper pack, paper piecing, stamping, die cutting and distressing! Oh and a tin can!!
I used 3 papers from a freebie pack of 6x6" papers, by Pink Petticoat, Wild Blossom Collection, for the wallpaper, the Puppy and Paw print Stamps are by Personal Impressions, with Big and Juicy Happy Birthday pad, and Dovecraft Cocoa Brown Pigment ink on supersmooth paper.
These I mounted onto my Base card with DST.
I used some scraps, (YES!! I used some scraps, Wey Hey!) for the paint tins, and Lampshade. Promarkers for the paint. And a Piece of loose brown patterned paper for the lampshade base.
I used a tin can to die cut the mirror, and some paper for the sentiment. Dies used: Spellbinders Lacey Ovals, and Labels 20. The sentiment was distressed with Tim Holtz's Milled Lavender Distress ink, and I added a lilac ribbon.

The Image itself was coloured using Promarkers, Blue Pearl, Cornflower, Orchid, Purple, Almond, Indigo Blue, Sun Kissed pink, Ginger Pumpkin, Raw Sienna, and Dusky Rose.
A bit busier than my normal card but I like it, and think its a lovely bit of fun, do pop by the Paper Crafting Journey Blog and see what the rest of my Teamies have come up with, there's some stunners in there, and have a go yourself at the Pretty In Pastels challenge,

Hi, Lou! I wondered why I wasn't seeing any posts from you... apparently Blogger as usual and my Follow didn't stick. Hopefully it stays put now. Love the paw prints... if only it were paint and not icky mud that my own pupsters brought in. LOL =)
