Pink flowers and gingham card


Hi everyone!

What did I tell you about my next card being pink in my last blog post? Would anyone be shocked that this card is in fact pink? And very pink at that! No? No, I didn't think so, lol!

Well, I went for the Splendid Roses again but just a single bunch this time and I used Zig markers instead of Copics. Blending together 2 different shades of markers for each flower and bud I made them all look slightly different but still pink to keep it cohesive. The leaves got coloured using a single green marker but lots of water and swish-swooshing to create some texture and different vibrancy.

A light blue shade was added around the bunch of flowers as I seem unable to leave too much white on a card. Something to work on perhaps.

When the colouring was done and dry, I trimmed the panel until it was quite slim. This I adhered to a pink gingham card stock with foam to raise it up a little bit and finally added that to a pink card base. This card is slimmer than my usual cards but I wanted to try a slightly different format to see how I like it and I must say, it looks better than I thought it would. Not that I thought it would look awful! Maybe just too different?

To finish off the card, I also diecut the word 'love' first in the same pink gingham and then a fushia coloured card stock to create that shadow effect when layered together slightly off. I also simply had to add a few sequins from the Moonbeams fusion.

Now, how is that for short and sweet?? Hmm? Not bad, huh? Usually I babble on for ages but I'm going to try and make the effort to curb the crazy a bit and stick to the card making. Well, we will see how long that lasts, eh?


That's it for me for today but I'll be back soon with our newest release! You won't want to miss it, it's super adorable!

Happy crafting,

Erica
