Pretty In Pink

Here's another one of those cards that are now with Jill in readiness for the Doncaster show. Again I built up the background using different flourishes from the Fancy Flourish stamp sheet. The wording was also taken from this sheet and the letters cut out individually.

The main image is from the Funky Frames sheet and was coloured using Coloursoft pencils and Sansador to give a nice muted finish. Out of all of the ones I did for Jill I think that this is probably my favourite. Infact I nearly couldn't bring myself to part with it so she doesn't know how lucky she is that she has got this one!!

The Coloursoft pencils and Sansador along with the stamp sheets can be purchased from The Craft Barn or of course you can get the stamp sheets from Jill at The Stamp Man.

This is beautiful Kay and I can understand why you are reluctant to part with it. My Favourite colour scheme. I am sure Jill will sell lots of your new stamps when people see you samples.

Thanks Christine. I'll find out next week from Jill when I speak to her how they were received at Doncaster. Fingers crossed!!

Your cards always look so effortlessly put together, with just the right amount of embellies.

I have a Q. At the Craft Barn Extravaganza, I can't remember which day, you mentioned that you used either 'Crystal' or 'Rhinestone' depending on whether the colourscheme was warm or cool. Were you referring to embossing powders or 'Stickles'?

I've just read your article in June Crafter Stamper again to aid my exploration with 'Starburst Stains' :-)

Hugs, Pauline x

Hi Pauline,

Crystal or Rhinestone Stickles (glitter glue). Apparently though they no longer make Rhinestone but Diamond is very similar.

By the way I can assure you that most of the time the cards I've put together are not effortless!! For a change though these all did come together really easily for me.
