Charisma Cardz challenge week 37 - Favourite colour combo

Wow, favourite colour combo. Mine seems to change all the time, I'm quite into lemon yellow and grey, then orange and brown. I'm too fickle, but pink and black is a classic combo that I use all the time so I had to use it for this challenge. I have used this lovely, cute image from this week's sponsor Stamp Fairy, using some new techniques to get a textured furry look on Linda the teddy. So the techy bit... use your blender pen on a scrap peice of fabric, then stamp the fabric on the image where you want the texture... simples really ;) it is subtle but goes to show there's more to markers than blending and shadows.
I hope you share your fave colour combos with us at Charisma Cardz this week as I am in need of some inspiration myself, and let me know if you try stamping textures with your blender or if you have any better techniques I can try ;)
