best ever nap

Hello again. time is really flying and it is time for another Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.
This time the challenge is being hosted by the lovely Pat K.
She has chosen the theme Pastel Colours.
This is what she had to say:

Good day everyone,

Pat K here to welcome you to a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday

It’s my turn to host and I’ve chosen the theme “Pastel Colours” .

I would describe my style as very eclectic.  I usually throw everything I have onto a card but there are times when the image yells out to me to be left alone resulting in a CAS design.   I love pastels but don’t shy away from stark contrasts in colour either.  I challenge myself by trying new techniques, not always mastering any of them but it’s fun to experiment.  I hope you enjoy the challenge and get a chance to play along with us. xx

Our challenge this week is being sponsored by The Paper Shelter. They have some lovely digi stamps and their shop is worth a visit. You can go from here.

This is the first image I fell in love with from the site. It is called best ever nap and you can find it here.
i printed him out just as an outline and coloured him in with promarkers. I know I used lime zest and apple green for the boy and various greys and a lilac for the elephant.
I added polar white flower soft to the pom pom on his hat.

I cut the image out using a spellbinders label die. I drew around it on gray paper and cut out a faux nestie.
The polka dot background and the lime panel and gray paper are all from Hot off the Press.
The pearlescent lime green card is coredinations. I die cut a Tim Holtz doily from it and the 1 that is a tonic die.
The white lacy border is another Tim Holtz die.
I assembled it as shown and finished it off  with some pearls.
