Tickled Pink

Tickled Pink

…as it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month I took up the challenge to make a pink card. There was also a sketch if we’d rather do that so I decided to do both.

We could use one other colour if desired – as you can see, I chose black. On the main pink card base I stamped the small coffee cup all over with a Versamark pad and dusted with pink mica powder. I used a cheap hairspray to set the powder so it wouldn’t smudge. The card was cut down a little and I used the off-cut for one of the stripes. Using the Cloisonné Circle I added pattern to this strip using black ink. The second stripe is the same black, sparkly card that I used to layer the central image.

The pink card used wasn't really that colour!

Background stamping

This is more like the true pink of the card, also shows the stamped stripe

Pink card; pink brads (were gold, I coloured them pink); black thread and a black sparkly layer

I added black yarn and pink ribbon with large pink jewels just in case there wasn't quite enough pink on the card!
