Am really enjoying the weekly colour challenges over at TwinkleTwinkleLikeAStar blog.
This weeks colours are:
Pink & Apple Green
with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Dark Green.
I am not a pink girl BUT after spending the day with Dyan Reaveley playing with Dylusions Sprays and her stamps i can say i am starting to think it is ok to craft with pink, i just won’t wear it or have it in my house, big step forward in my head!
Here is my attempt at this weeks challenge.
Made a journal for my neighbours little girl who is around 10 years old and loves pink.
Started off with a pink coloured piece of card which i sprayed with Bubblegum Pink Dylusions Spray, dried off with a heat gun then sprayed again with the same colour through a stencil, while still wet tuned it over and pressed down on the opposite page to get the reverse effect and to use up the ink that was still on the stencil.
Cut the card in half, stamped over the background with She Script stamp then added some washi tape.
Stamped out some of the flowers and one of the stems onto more card. I had some green card stock which i splattered with green ink to use as the base for the flowers.
Sprayed some Crushed Grape Dylusion ink through another stencil to add a little depth to the other pink page.
Cut out the images ready to assemble onto the finished page.
Added Holly Rainbow Glaze for the pop of dark green and also glazed the hair on the head i had cut from one of my other stamps.
Made the journal from white mount board for the cover and added copy paper, 120gsm paper and some navy blue card. The little girl want a scrap book album. Added the binding using The Cinch from WRMK.
The pink fluffy edge came from a Valentines day card i received many years ago and saved when i was clearing out some of my stash.
Looking forward to your comments, thanks for dropping by.
