Pretty in pink


 
 
Once the images were coloured I added glitter to the veil and the bottom of her dress - I added a Wink of Stella to his bowtie and waistcoat - not easy to see on the photo.

Sunglasses required



Beccy's Place - March challenge - I coloured the image then chopped it up and layered each section on black

.I'm not a person who goes for bold bright colours but Gerberas are the exception OR so I thought -when I passed my local florist yesterday I had a look inside and there were some beautiful Gerberas in white and the palest of pinks - who knew ?

A bit of twine

A little bit of Christmas


 
 
I 'm not really sure about this card -I love the background paper but I when I added silver or pale blue tones it looked a bit drab and boring - bring on the pink - a pale pink.
 
 
Christmas Card Throwdown   -  March sketch - I wasn't sure if my little tree at the bottom of the card would be allowed but then I noticed a member of the DT has some silver holly on her card.
 
Southern Girls - challenge 155 - pop it up -  I popped up my little  pink tree.

All dressed up


I stamped a swirl pattern with Versamark and clear embossed.



I use distress inks in 'worn lipstick' and 'weathered wood'



the dress form stamp is just  from a set I got in K-mart . the red dots and heart are just punched from card coloured with the ' worn lipstick ' and the covered with glossy accents.

 Tuesday Morning Sketches -sketch 392 -  you mentioned using a Bible page which I did not really want to try so used a book page instead -  if you add  texture and colour you can keep the script visible and not desecrate your Bible.

In the Pink

 
It's the first day of Autumn but we still have very hot weather -  a great shaft of sunlight which shows up on the left hand side of my card.
 
 
Passion for ProMarkers - challenge 384 - In the Pink
 
I used the two stamps at the top to create the background and then stamped the rose on another piece of card - all coloured in with AquaMarkers - I love being able to add lots of water to get these delicate colours - looking at my card I think maybe I should have added a small border of green then black around the large main  panel.

Using up old bits and pieces






In an attempt to tidy my craft stuff I found several sheets of half used  rub on sentiments ,orange flowers,some black borders and musical peel offs- all destined for the rubbish but at the last minute I decided to put them to good use and make some simple cards for my charity box.

Have a heart or a butterfly





I think this is the first time I have bought brown papers - I really liked the designs and hope I can make some pretty cards with the papers.These two cards were made with one sheet of striped paper and a tiny amount if the diamond pattern.I think the blue works really well with the brown.
