Hobbycutz Challenge 54. . . . . . . . .Pink!

Good morning all you lovely folk. Hope you are in fine fettle and if not, chin up! (or in my case, its chins lol!)
I have to say, dear Ita, I could have cried when I read your comment. Nobody has ever said I bring sunshine to their heart (or any other part of their body for that matter) and it was such a lovely thing for you to say, especially as you're not a well girlie. I try and throw in a little humour to break up my wittering or I'm sure you would all be feeding your hands into your Grand Caliburs to keep awake hahaha!

Anyhoo, back to business as its challenge time at Hobbycutz again. Number 54 is "Pink", chosen by Valou and sponsored by Aurora Wings. Kobie at Hobbycutz still has some DT spots up for grabs so if you would like to be on the DT, please have a look at the sticky on the blog and contact Kobie.

A5 white base card
Pink PMD card
Paper from First Edition Love Letters pad (8x8)
Swirls from Hobbycutz
SB Bitty Blossoms 
SB Matting Basics A
Crafters Companion Vintage Floral Sentiments stamp
Dusky pink satin ribbon (Sanctuary Beads 50p for 25 yrds. . . . .bargain. More colours featuring in a Pond near you soon)
Aged Mahogany DI
Victorian Velvet DI
Versamark pen
White detail E/powder

I used the Versamark pen and white EP to edge the Love Letters paper as I wanted a contrast against the layer below. I tried using white gel pen but it wasn't bold enough.

I used the Aged Mahogany DI to sponge over the Hobbycutz swirls to give them a pink tinge.

Well that's today's creation. Hope you like it and that you will pop over to Hobbycutz to see what the other guys (including our Wendywoo) have created. Why not join in the challenge or apply for the DT too?

As always, thank you for your time and comments. Welcome back Jenny.

Hope the Scottish Posse have got improved weather now. If not, our Lesley has said she's got an airbrush so I'm sure that she won't mind setting up a spray tan booth. . . . . . .I fancy a bit of Tea Dye with a dash of Wild Honey for the Summer. . . . . .I think that antiques guy on the box goes for Rusty Hinge lol!!!
Christine, you know me, any excuse for a bit of "stripping" which reminds me, Lesley, does that airbrush get rid of wrinkles?

On that note, have a good week and play nicely.

  3. Morning Ang,
    Love your card, and you even have a John like bow, have you had lessons.? Like the way you have used the sentiment too.

  4. Good morning Ang. Yes you do brighten up our mornings and days. I love reading your blog and I like when you put your little twist on things. Love your card and how you have done your sentiment. Now I have that back ground paper, I will have to go and have a dig out as I should use it. It was bought when I was just doing scrapbooking, and seeing how I haven't done that for a while these papers haven't seen the light of day. Hazel xx

  19. Hi Ang,
    fab card. Love that pink paper used, and the fab colouring of the Hobbycuts swirls.
    You certainly do have a way with words that will cheer anybody up.
    Your too young for wrinkles.
    I am very lucky at 65 and I have no wrinkles my the stars would love to have my skin. Not a wrinkle in my neck either, I get it from my mother as she only developed wrinkles in her 80th year.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  20. Hi Ang! Pink is not my fave color but you did a fabulous job with this card. I think the airbrush only works on photos not in real life!! "Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been. (Mark Twain)" I'm smiling reading your blog and wrinkling away!! Have a great day!
