A Whiter Shade of Pale

Over at "Stampin´for the Weekend" they have a challenge that will take you back to the 1960's, you have a choice of 3 songs from the 60's for you to base you card on this week I chose "A Whiter Shade of Pale" by Procol Harum as the theme for my card. I stamped my image with rich Cocoa Memento ink and just used one copic marker pen (E00 Skin White) to shade the image of the lady trying to keep her as pale as I could I also used my copic blender to blend the colour paler where I could, I used Anna Griffins white paper with a hint of cream, Prima light cream blooms and K&co pearl brads, the ribbon is May arts palest ivory.
