I was challenged...a fight to the Pink!

Hello, and welcome!

Bet you're wonderin' what the title is all about.....nosey lot, you!

Well.....out there in Bloggieland, there is a poor, mis-guided young lady who needs help.........there is something wrong with her eyesight.....BUT.....before you get all maudlin, let me explain.............

Christina is an extremely talented crafter.....her creations knock me sideways, and she amazes me with her fearless attitude that enables her to try all kinds of techniques........and she comes up smellin' of roses, without fail.
So....what's the problem, you may be askin'............the problem is (to my mind, at least...ha!)  that she adores the colour ......oh, I can hardly bring meself to even type the word......ppp......ppur........purp........purple!    Yuck....ugh.......yekk!!!

She dawbs it all over the flippin' place, just as if it is a pretty hue......yeah, I know.....she definitely has a problem....ha!
Knowing that she is a wonderful, talented, generous person (she sent me blog candy!), I felt it my duty to point out the error of her ways.....she even has purple in her I knew the problem was serious....ha!

What does she do?.....She challenges me to make a card using all pink that's a colour!'s my pink last word to Christina..........purple is only for Halloween!!

Ok....ok.....I know there's some green on there......and maybe a teeny bit of yellow.....but the beautiful Lili of the Valley image would be invisible, otherwise!...........oh......and white.........I give up!

I used some scraps, and a bit of Bazzil, and coloured up with Promarkers.........Here's a tip I use all the time....when you cut out a digi or stamped image, leave a slight white border, then go around it with a toning ink or pen....makes the image stand out better......

Can you tell I'm re-discoverin' beads, at the moment.....ha!........

The sentiment is a Unity stamp, which I stamped with green and pink Promarker and cut with a Nestie..........I LOVE this stamp!

Can you guess what I dabbed on her pretty wings?............actually got panickey when I realized my ickle bottle of Glitter Mod Podge might be gettin' a bit did that happen? went and bought more, today.....yaaaay!

Dabbed a yellow Promarker on the white net before rollin' the flower.............isn't that pink gorgeous?

D'ya see the cute banner?'s just one part of the fabby blog candy that Christina sent to me, and it's gonna get a lot of inkin' used some glittery pink thread to do a little hand sewing around the image block.............

So....what d'ya think, cg?
To take a peek at all the fabbyness (new word I'm copyrightin') that is Christina....aka cg....go over to her blog .......

Thanks for dropping in, you lovely people!

Anything goes

  8. Well now AM, I am truly honoured that you even bothered to comment on my card yesterday... seeing as it was PURPLE!
    You know my favourite colour is pink, and I am thrilled you've made a delicious card with it :) have to agree with your tip on cutting out an image, it makes a HUGE difference and sometimes looks so much better than just cutting a square or other border around it. Love those net flowers, love the bunting, love the beads (glad you've rediscovered them), love the pink...ah Heck, I love it all :)

  11. Oh, I thought we were friends! I love purple, definitely my favourite - it calls to me in the shops! I do like other colours too and just adore your PINK creation, a lovely little fairy and fab embellishments.

  12. Gorgeous card - love the image and great net flowers too.

    I'm afraid to admit I'm another purple lover - especially the type that's wrapped around chocolate bars!

    Thanks for joining in with our 'Make it Girlie' challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday this week - and for sharing your Top Tip on cutting out images - I agree, doing that always seems to finish off an image :)
