Pink and Grey







I entered a swap that required you to use Pink and Grey as your colours and this is what I came up with. I used the lovely Tilda Standing in the Sea and coloured her hair, flesh and background with Whisper Pens. Her dress, bows and hat were paper pierced - a first for me and the bows were really, really, really, fiddly! I then cut her out with a round nestability and matted her onto DP with a scalloped nestability. The DPs I used were downloaded freebies from Canon Injet (they have loads of freebies). The grey shiny paper strip was run through the Cuttlebug with the Curls and Swirls folder. The sentiment, brads and flowers were from my stash and the pearls are from Debbi Moore.
I am entering it into the following challenges:
The Stampman - Take Two Colours (Pink and Grey)
Creative Card Crew - Cute and Girly
Die Cut Dreams - Gingham
One Stitch at a Time - Sketch and a bit of pink (I may have overdone the pink, lol)
Bunny Zoe - Summer Days
Lexi's Creations - Paper Piercing (hat, bows and dress)
