Baby Pink, me...
Im demoing at the Strikes Garden centre in Congleton today it would be great if you could pop in and say Hi, especially as I know so many of you are deep in prep for Christmas!
I know its not my usual colour but all the elements seemed to come together in this card, using the new dies and matching stamps to die for, in baby pink! I just love the clean crisp yet soft way this harmonises, what do you think are you a pink person?
I started by stamping the brand new tumbling leaves stamp to die for onto coconut white foundation card. I then coloured the image in using distress markers, worn lipstick and mowed lawn if my memory serves me right!
I threaded the ribbon through the circle fixing it on the back so that it goes over and under the aperture ( this is better illustrated in the pictures!) I then adhered a piece of acetate behind the aperture and attached the sentiment to that so that it appears to be floating.
Next I took a piece of double sided adhesive sheet and aded it to another layer of coconut white foundation card. I the covered this in marshmallow mica flakes which in real life add a level of depth and subtle sparkle to the card.
I hope you have enjoyed this journey into Pink, another new stamp to die for tomorrow when I shall be in Darlington for a workshop.
