More fun with pink!!
I've had such a fabulous time this past couple of weeks with our new challenge blog - In The Pink... we had over 200 people join and had 150 entrants!! It's certainly kept Sylvia and I busy (and me scratching my head and consulting my daughter a lot when it came to the techno bit..)... but we got there in the end! I can 't thank you all enough for all your support and kind words about the new challenge... and has made the hard work very worthwhile!
Now, our new theme this week is 'Things With Wings'... so I thought I'd have a go at something that's been in my head for a while...
I used Maja Designs Crea Diem papers (soooooooooooooo difficult to cut into rather than just stroke), and I even ripped the edge of one to create the distressed effect! Then I frayed some seam binding to put under the ripped edge. The flowers were created using the Sizzix 3D flowers die then rolled, and I cut them out of some hand-made paper that I'd done a while ago using Starburst Stains. The flourishes are from Die-namics, and the butterflies are Martha Stewart punches.... and I've also added gems, buttons, some feathers (which were a lovely little gift from a fab friend) and of course Glamour Dust for sparkle! I distressed all the edges of those gorgeous papers to give the finished 'shabby chic' touch! Hope you like..
Now my second card..
I used gorgeous deep pink DP from Papermania Capsule collection matted onto the reverse (it's double sided!)... then I used a Memory Box corner flourish. Of course, she just had to have some gems and some sparkle for her wings.... and she was done!
My week has gone well so far - I think we can now call the kitchen 'done' (apart from the redecoration after the leak that is), and I've also had the plumber visit to stop my new boiler making the noises it has been! Hope it keeps on like this!
Take care all..... thanks again, and ooh and a big welcome to my newest followers..
Happy Crafting and Hugs
