Girly 21st - very pink!


My mum's fiance asked me to make this card for his daughter, and my mum chose the image and colours based on a card I made a while ago that she liked.  I think the pink ran away with me a little though, as it turned out quite bright!

The image is from Stitchy Stamps, coloured with promarkers, with some shading added with koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador.  Then lots of lovely glamour dust all over her wings :o)  I've used coredinations card embossed with various embossing folders and sanded it all back to rough it up a bit.  Used plain & scalloped ovals and blossom nesties.  The tag was cut with the smallest die from this set from Little Claire, oh I do love these tags!  I inked around the tag with distress ink but I'm not keen on that bit... doesn't look quite right... I added a few little flowers to distract from the ink a bit!  The flowers are all punched with x-cut punches, with viva pearl centres - still haven't got the hang of this stuff... why does everyone else's 'pearls' look nicely rounded and mine go all pointy and odd looking?  Anyway... used a MS doily lace punch that you can just see behind the embossed panels, added some lace.  For the easel stopper I used some MME flower buttons, then added some card candy to finish it off.  Oh, numbers were cut with the Sizzix 'night & day' alphabet.


I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Lindsey said...

Love it! You can NEVER have enough pink! Love the distressing, go you! And the colouring of the image is beautiful. I have the same problem with pointy pearls. I am going to try standin the bottle in hot water before I use it next time to see if that will loosen the liquid and make rounder pearl. Knowing my luck it will probably do nowt!

Its gorgeous Lisa, bet she will love it. I also have the same trouble with the Viva Pens but sometimes find holding at an angle rather than a down position can help as is not layering on top so much!
