Just Magnolia -THINK PINK

We are promoting Breast Cancer Awareness month, I’m sure a lot of you know our amazing teamie Jacque is celebrating beating the disease and we wanted to show our support and love for a very special lady, and also for all the very special ladies that have fought/are fighting the disease.  So our theme for this week is “THINK PINK”.  Nice and simple, use some pink on your creation and you could be the winner of the fabulous prize and also will be showing your support!!  We really hope you can join in this week.  Just check out the delish prize that Wild Orchid Crafts has sponsored!!


So on to my card, this Fairy Dust Tilda was just perfect for what I had in mind … not blowing fairy dust but blowing kisses and good wishes to all those amazing ladies.


I have used Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby papers and went a bit crazy with the distress crackle paint around the edges. I carried the sketch through to the inside of the card.  The Magnolia Doo Hickey Tilda Lace die just seemed to fit right in with the papers and design.


A close up of the ribbon treatment – the “ribbon” is actually seam binding that I scrunched up then set the wrinkles with some steam.  I stitched a little heart button in the centre.


The image was coloured with Copics, I used E21, E00, E000, R20 for the skin, E55, E53, E51, E50 for the hair and RV34, RV11, RV000 for the clothes then added some burgundy and black prismacolor pencil to deepen the shading.  I am not happy with the pink, I just can’t get a decent pink with Copics.


Last shot – the arty one (the one where I stand on my head rofl)


And the panic is over – I have been without the internet this week.  We had our Sky box upgraded and the numptie that fitted the box ran new cable from the outside and stuck a great big staple through my existing broadband cable.  I was NOT happy!!!  So, sore back, no internet and a gruelling physio session did not make for a very good week :(

Hope you all have a great weekend, I am going to the Stamp Magic show in Doncaster this weekend, hope to see some of you there.

Thanks for stopping by,
