Carley's day out 'think pink' x

Kerrie (kezzla) here

Its friday again which means its my DT blog post day

I have getting caught up this week with all my blogging and challenges etc and this is the card ive made for the '' so i actually am blogging this twice, once here for you all to see and once on my personal blog to enter the challenge xxx

i really love this image and i chose soft pinks to match the roses backing paper i picked from a paper pad by Creata xx i've used promarkers to colour the image i'm quite pleased how it turned out i was a little worried that the softer pink on her dress would be too close to skin colour. Ive also inked around the image with Tim Holtz distress ink in Spun Sugar, then used this same ink around the backing papers, the card blank and the die cut motif xx

i've used a few (xcut) nesting shaped dies to cut out the motif and som matt&layerimg with silver mirror board which i've also used for matt&latering for the backing paper and the image too. The same mirror board i used to die cut the leaf swirls and curly swirl (dies by Creata), i've used soft pink card and some of the backing paper for the die cut flowers (dies by Creata) and layered these and attached to the swirls topped with mulberry paper roses and a few gems.

I hope you like this weeks post from me i will be back again next friday but in the meantime i will be posting most days on my own personal blog below
