Just a Touch of Pink


Wow another night of broken sleep.  Not helped by the fact that my dogs insist on sleeping in the room with me, heating it up by another few degrees.  I never thought I would say it but BRING ON THE WINTER!  Sorry, hope I haven’t jinxed the rest of the season.

Any road up, to my card for today.  I call it (imaginatively) ‘Just a Touch of Pink’.

Pink and pearls, what could be better!

I have to say that this is the pinkest item I have ever made. Not too sure why as I love pink.  I have to admit to being quite surprised as to how many shades of pink there are, borne out by my variety of Pro and Flexmarkers (used for the colouring) and all the beautiful papers I have.  Never underestimate the power of pink!

My gorgeous image is another stunner from LOTV.  I love her oversized dress and shoes and I thought she deserved a ‘real’ pearl necklace and bracelet.
I used kraft card for my base and the DP’s are EMMA’S GARDEN by Jennifer Ellory.  I made the flowers from tissue paper using the Delicate Asters die from Spellbinders, and using  tissue paper meant I could cut 8 flowers in one go.
I hope that necklace is not too heavy for her!
The other dies I used were SB (what else) Labels 23 and A2 Scalloped Border.  I love both these dies but have had them quite a while and never used them (for shame).  That won’t happen again.

My other dies are Marianne Creatables Anja Vintage Swirls (that didn’t want to release from the die) and a Tattered Lace corner (that practically flew out!).

I finished with flat back pearls and a Kandan sentiment.  And there we are. 

Back soon with probably more pink stuff (could get addictive).

Smiling always (if it gets any hotter I’m emigrating to Iceland (the country not the frozen food shop))!
