I chose a digi from the new release at McMahon Five Designs called Girl Talk
I was inspired by a challenge at City Crafter to make two identical cards aka Perfect Pair- except you need to make one in purple and one in blue. I used some Pan Pastels for the very first time and had fun... : )
I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and highlighted the embossing using two colors of purple and two colors of blue chalks. I did use a fixative after using the chalks. I also used chalks to color the images- I used Copics on the skin and on the purple card for a lighter touch to her throw. I added a little white over the top of the blues to tone them down. I also added Creative Inspirations paint to the images for some pretty sparkle. I also used 'torn Frames' from the technique Junkies in black.

The sentiment is from Create with TLC- LOL I love this!
