Color Hues #81, Dandelion Clocks

Afternoon. I'm back with my card for the brand new colour duo from Color Hues. This time we've gone for a pastel look with this new pairing. Here's my take.

It took me quite a few attempts to get a good photo of this card and even then the shimmer on the wings have eluded the camera! Anyway here is another from my to colour box, using another image stamped on my friends Di's visit a few years ago. This is another LOTV image called Dandelion Clocks. Do you remember blowing the seeds off a dandelion and counting off the hours as you blew the little parachute seeds off?
So after colouring with Copics, a few from the BG group, 10,11 and 34 for the mint and three from the V group, 12, 15 and 18 for the lilac. Don't know what possessed me to use Copics as these two colours are the least well covered by the Copic range. Luckily I remembered I had some NitWits DP that also fit the bill! The wings were coloured with the same BG group but I added a couple of layers of Wink of Stella to add some extra sparkle to her wings.
As I was rootling through the EFs, I also found a Dandelion Clock EF that was the perfect backdrop, think it could be either a DoCrafts or a Hobbycrafts make. My little sentiment is from my early days of crafting, Molly Bloom, no longer in business.
As to assembly, I fussy cut the fairy out, added my DP to an A6 note card and edged the DP with a thin strip and a die cut scalloped edge from card coloured with V15, a great way to link your image to your background and not spend hours looking for just the right colour!! My white embossed panel square was added with pads, then the sentiment,finally the image, again on pads.

So where will these new colours take you? We'd love to see your takes in the gallery.
Should you need more inspiration there's always the rest of the DT and our GD to help here.
