Well...... this isn't pink.....
Well, just to prove I can..... I thought I'd make a card that isn't pink!! But... it does have glitter on it!!
Thank you ALL for the wonderful response we've had over at IN THE PINK.... We had 100 people join us in the first 24 hours..... and now we're up to 138!! Can you believe it??? So many closet pink lovers out there. I can't wait for the challenge to launch on Aug 9.... and to see all the different ways of using pink!
Even with the fantastic blog to keep me busy, I've been feeling a little down lately, what with all that's been going on with the kitchen problems, and now my eyesight is causing me some difficulty.. can't seem to focus properly (and no it's not the wine!!)... so today I needed to do a card I FELT like doing.... and this is the result!! I saw Coops use this image recently using green, and fell in love with her straight away (the image that is, not Coops!!) LOL! She's called Braid in My Hair and is from A Day for Daisies.
I coloured her with a mix of Copics and Promarkers..... shaded with dots and white gel pen, then distressed the edge of the image with a Distress Ink - dusty concord. Oooh I used a Nestie to cut her oval first! Then the fabulous papers are digital downloads would you believe.... ooooh that colour is so lush.... it must come next to pink as my favourite. They are from Design House Digital and are by Angela Hinksman - called True Romantics.
I distressed the edges of the papers, then used my Icicles to give that glittery edge. The birds also have glitter on their wings, but it's not showing up. And as I'm always getting told (by a certain blogger) that I don't use flowers often enough, I decided to get some used.... with pearls too!
So there you go..
I hope you're all enjoying the Olympics on TV..... it seems we have little else to watch!! I know I should get involved more - especially as Emma is volunteering at the rowing - but I'm afraid I'm not a sports fan, and luckily enough, neither is my OH! Ah well, we're going to dig through what we've recorded and see what we can come up with...
Take care all, and remember, the countdown to PINK DAY has begun!! only 11 more days to go..
