A Colour Combination for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge Design Team to play with

Good morning to you
Today brings another fabulous challenge for the

and our lovely Tracie chose this theme


I was a little stumped when I first saw these colours until Tracie raided my copic box and got out the three colours.  She then very kindly introduced me to some fabulous fresh papers in the Secret Crafter Shop here - so on the next coffee break I quickly acquired these and added them to my purchases.  Now this is not a normal colour scheme for me but I have to say I was very quickly taken by it.

So here is my design team creation for this week
Base card is another Whichcraft template, I coloured this with the lime copic and then used a blue paper to frame my pink papers.  I have added my favorite Secret Crafter Manga Image "Angel Boy" I have coloured him with copics and added a clear glitter sakuro to his wings for the glittery effect.  He is sat on a plinth of glittery liquid applique and behind him is an acetate circle, edged in the blue glitter and then a fine spray of silver through a template of a moon that I made to show him sort of sitting on the moon.  The sentiment is a velum one and the white poinsettia sprayed with the silver glitter (thanks Jane for introducing me to this love it) 

Here is a close up of the image
I know he has pink eyes I was matching the colour scheme :)
