In the pink...
well after all the lovely comments on yesterdays post and card I really am feeling in the Pink so why not share a Pink card.
This is another sample from Sunday and Mondays shows this time highlighting one of my favourite innovations from Sue Wilson the striplet collection. My blog family, especially Mrs Duck, will know my weakness for a striplet this one is the brand new timeless die used here to create this bright background.
I started by cutting the insert panel form the striplet into an piece of bright white foundation card three times to for a square. Next I used the centre strip ands the outline that matches it and cut this in white and backed it with pink foam mounting these in the centres of the background. I mounted the whole piece onto more of the Sherbet point card ( I'm not a pink person but this shade of Sherbet really shouts to me!
I then cut the Molly frame and take dies in sherbet twice, backed each one with white and cut one in half to give a shadow frame effect at the back. I stamped the sentiment, in watering can archival of course) onto a scrap of white and cut it with the centre oval form the molly set, mounting it in the centre.
Next I cut a series of the new Starflower die set in the pink and white, mounted the same size together offset and added pastel pink PVA in the centre ( there is a set of 4 pastel colours of the PVA dimensional on this weeks shows)
I finished the piece with vanilla PVA pearls this collection has so many places to put pearls its amazing.
This card will be a demo on Mondays shows so tune in to see how it was made.
