Another two weeks have flown by and it's time for the next challenge at In The Pink! I'm so enjoying being part of this challenge blog..... we're having so many fabulous entries from such wonderful people... and it's nice to have been brought together by our love of pink!
The challenge this time is to use Pink Plus One - that is Pink with ONE other colour!
My first card today features PINK AND BLACK and is a very simple card... no colouring involved! The damask paper is a digi download from Sassy Designs - it's called Pink-Black Damask and is from their Blushing Paper pack. All I did was use a 5 x 7" card base... covered first with pink bazzill... then punched a border out with a Martha Stewart edge punch... added a grosgrain black ribbon... then made a black rosette flower from a Tim Holtz Die. Lastly, I added a gem button that I got from The Hobby House. A very simple card, but hopefully effective?
So I've created an easel card using the large scalloped die.... this will fit a 6 x 6" envelope. I used an image that I've had for a long time - it's a digi one from the Digi Stamp Boutique called Mothers Day Flowers - and yes I know it's not Mothers Day... but a woman always likes to receive flowers.. right? So it could be for multiple occasions!
I chose some pink and green floral paper that's been in my stash for a long time... then coloured the image with my Copics to match the paper. I found some pink and green card in my stash..... which I used for the various different sized circles... Then I decoupaged the flowers on the image and also added gems and some glitter.
Lastly, I added a little image that I've created myself!! I thought the easel bit of the card needed something to stop it falling flat..... so came up with this design, that I cut with a small circle die. If you would like a copy to be able to print out and use yourself, please email me and I will send it to you. You can always alter the colour from pink (if you MUST lol!), in a photo programme.
So pop over to In The Pink.... and take a look at the other inspiration - and also check up to see if you were chosen as a Perfect Pinkie!
I'll be back at the weekend to tell you all about our day at the Harrogate Papercraft Show - and to own up to what I bought!! If you're going to be there on Saturday and you see me with Christine and Elaine... please say hello.... I'm told I look exactly like my profile pic... not sure if that's a good or a bad thing!! hehe!
Big hugs and Happy Crafting
