Stamping For The Weekend: Challenge #9, Use the photo for inspiration

For this fortnights challenge, number 9 start date is May 9th...
We are challenged by this as all we had to inspire us is a photo collage of 6 pics & 4 colour splats.

They are all very beautiful colours though as I adore purples & the coordinating colours especially when card making.

This is an A6 card (which I dont make very often) which came already embossed with a pale peachy pink. The image was coloured with Promarkers (Cool Grey, Saffron, Lobster Pink) Flexmarkers (Glacier Blue, Icicle) & Spectrum Noir's (Pastels selection: HB1, HB2, IB1, FS1, LG1, LG2). As I didnt have exactly the right colours to match I had to use similar from all the alcoholic pens that I have in my stash. The Spectrum Noirs are a new set that I brought this last week from when Create & Craft TV had a Bank Holiday Weekend special deals on.  I only brought the pastels set as I have a real good selection of Promarkers & Graph It pens but quite low on the pastel shades.  The LOTV image was a joy to colour. I cant remember where I got this image from but I know it did come along with some other images from LOTV (possibly a freebie from a craft magazine??).
