Country Mama

I have discovered that I have a big problem. Okay, maybe more than one - for those who know me - BUT, my problem this week was the challenge to colour something pastel. 
I realised that pastel means: put down those Copics, stop colouring, don't add any more! 
It just goes totally against my normal: choose another colour, add more depth and only stop when the family needs to be fed!
I am so stressed now, I think I need a lie down ... on second thoughts, I think that I will get out B21,23,24,26,28,29 and even 39. Phew! I feel better. 
The Copics I used for this Country Mama image from Saturated Canary are:
B21,23 and 24
C00,2 and 4
RV91 and 93 
E31,50,51,53,55,57 and 93
the flower dies are from Joycrafts and the paper is from Kaisercraft Lavendar Haze range.
