So, we are celebrating Ladies Only on CCT this week, and our sponsor is All Dressed Up! please stop by the blog to read about the prize and see what the rest of the team have created.
I've inked up my LOTV Coffee Time stamp and coloured with my Copic pens, although in my close up pic it's looking a bit washed out. I've used another piece of my SU! special paper, same as last week, and gone to town with flowers. First up though, here is the card:
I've edged with my embossed faux stitching although it's hard to make out, and I left off a sentiment so I can use if for any special girly occasion. The die cuts are Marianne Design, except the SB scallop cream mat. The pink pearls on the cream mat are made with a new Viva Decor pearl pen, and yes they do seem to be self levelling so no nipples on top although with the light catching them it looks otherwise! The flowers are made with MD mulberry paper and coloured with a couple shades of Momento pink die ink, here's a close up of them:
For the darker flowers cut with CR1201, I inked just the edge of the petals, then spritzed on the back so the ink bleeds a little, squished and then when dry layered up two and added the pearl centre.
The tiny buds cut with LR0160 I made from the paper that I already coloured pink as it's easier to do that way around .. .. then snip into the middle, lightly spritz with water and roll up tight. When dry they come undone a bit so you might need to re-roll if you want tight buds, but I actually like the loose look!
I hope you like my card today and the picture of the dies has helped - let me know if you prefer to see a list or a picture.
Creative Inspirations are wanting girlie creations this week so definitely one to enter! The In The Pink new theme is floral, along with lots of pink, and a picture of pretty roses in a tea cup .. .. inspiration certainly! and I think my card fits that theme but not sure if it's pink enough, hope so.
Sunshine is back in Cornwall today so I need to finish off tidying the garden and pruning/pulling out some of the spring and early summer flowering things that have gone over to let the light in for the things still to flower that seem to be hiding underneath. I am beginning to realise that either I'm getting too old or the garden is getting too big .. .. I think more permanent shrub planting that just needs an annual prune might be the way to go, before my back goes!
