Hi Peeps....

Today there is a fabulous new challenge at In The Pink - our theme is 


so it's an easy peasy one..  

I decided to use a word die and had seen a couple of techniques I wanted to try with it .. and now I can't make up my mind which I like more!  

On my first card I used an old Stamping Up flower image - and used the resist technique  - stamping first with Versamark, then embossing with white embossing powder, then blending various pink inks over the image which 'resists' the colour.  The diecut is from Hero Arts and comes in a set called Stamp and Cuts - Happy... the birthday word also comes with the set - along with lots of others... such as anniversary etc.

Then for my second card - I used a technique I'd seen used by Jennifer McGuire - although mine didn't seem to work as well as hers... more practice needed I think!  I used a double sided sticky sheet - sticking one side to white card - and then on the other side, using glitter which is pressed hard into the sticky - then colouring with alcohol markers in varying shades of pink.  The glitter still shows up well.  Again I used the Hero Arts set - with a couple of sequins too.

Hope you'll pop over to In The Pink and join in the 'Happy' fun...  you could win a fabulous £10 voucher from Dies to Die for if your creation is picked at random from our Perfect Pinkies.

Looking forward to seeing you at In The Pink...

Big hugs...
