Akiko Autumn ATC

All our snow has finally melted here in British Columbia, Canada and it is beginning to look alot like spring and though the lovely pastel colors in this ATC were just perfect to depict this time of year.

The main focal point for this ATC is the charming  and sweet Akiko / Autumn  who is one of my own original digital designs from my Darlings of the Orient Collection,

Who wouldn't want pink hair? Akiko has been colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless turpentine.

To create the rest of the elements on my ATC, I used a piece with a bit of Asian printing from an old computer from an old computer catalog,, a paper doily, a flower punch as well as my Silhouette Digital cutter to cut the pale lime scroll.

Akiko, is being featured this week on the
 Anything Goes challenge at Art With No Boundaries 
hosted by CS Designs. 

 Akiko is also playing in the following challenges:
Art With No Boundaries ... Anything Goes
ATCs & Cards with Attitude ... Anything Goes / Faces
Lexi's Creations ... Punches
Love to Create Challenge ... Challenge 12 ... Anything Goes
Make it Monday ... Fun Link Party

Wonderful soft colors! Love the flower in Akiko's hair. I'm reminded that I've neglected ATCs for some time.
