SOC Week 5 - Green + Green + Pink

Hello all!
 
Hope everyone had a super weekend.
 
I cannot believe it is week 5 of SOC 2015,  the past few weeks have  gone by so quickly.
 I must just say thank you to everyone who has visited my blog and made a comments, it really does mean a lot to me to read peoples lovely comments.  I spend many hours visiting everyone  who participates and I leave a comment on everyone I can get access to. (Think hubby thinks I have another man as it's often when the girls have gone to bed when I get a few minutes to comment. LOL)
 
 A couple  more weeks and the girls are off school for 7 weeks.
During which  I don't think I'll have much me time, I'll have to try and squeeze as much crafting as possible in the days ahead, wish me luck.
 
Saying that I have a pretty busy week and so  I have revisited a previous project, the one that started all the dress  canvas's off. Here is the original post http://artycreationinspiration.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/fancy-frock-canvas.html.
This  was the original design, as you can see colour wise it was lacking a little something and so this morning when the challenge came through I instantly knew I wanted to add a touch of pink.
The original had papers in the background mainly black and white but it did have a pale pink hue too.
Colour bloom sprays in 2 greens dark and light were used to colour.
Perfect!
 
 
 
This is how the revamp turned out.
 
Pink blossom was substituted for the white ones and pink micro beads added to the black glass glitter to enhance the shading even more. I am quite happy now the pink is on, as it seems to have finished the project off.
 
 
 
Here are a couple more close ups.

 
If you like what you see and would like to see more projects on this theme hop on over to
 
Just thought I would share a picture of potted roses sent to me for my wedding anniversary a couple of weeks ago. The colours being Green leaves and the flowers were actually pink on the inner petals and another shade of Green on the outer petals.
 
 
This is another face too, I call this one "Just Breathe" for my eldest daughter who has just taken some mock exams.




One day I will get round to adding colour but for now I'm still practicing sketching.
