Think Pink!

There’s a PINK theme going on at Pear Tree Designs this week.We have a fabulous sponsor too – One Stop Card Crafts.For more details please click on the link and gain some inspiration from the beautiful DT cards including our GD Karla.

 I’ve used a  gorgeous freebie image for my card.It ‘s from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff.I first masked the dress and form then applied Distress Inks and then coloured those parts with Promarkers.I decided the scrolling leaves were a bit fiddly to do this with so just coloured over the top with Promarkers.I did find the printer ink smudged a little but I didn’t mind.I think it just adds to the vintage/grungy feel.The dress has been paper pieced with more Distress Ink added to give more depth.I added Crystal glitter and pearls to form a necklace.I embellished it further with a length of organza ribbon.It was white originally so I coloured it to match with Promarkers.

Image – Freebie from Linday’s Stamp Stuff
Mediums – Promarkers;Distress Inks in Spun Sugar,Victorian Velvet and Tattered Rose;Crystal glitter;Silicone glue
Papers – K & Co
