Pretty in Pink



At Allsorts this week our lovely Sarah is going all Pretty in Pink, one I think will appeal to lots of us. Our sponsors are A Passion for Stamps and Nicecrane Designs

As I am a DT for both of our sponsors I have combined products from both on my cards, the images on both are new ones from Nicecrane Designs (links below). I love the pretty flower fairy on the top card with the lovely contrast of deep green and pink, printed her onto white cardstock and then used Pan Pastels to add some background and stamped some Lavinia flowers and tiny fairy. Some little handmade roses using the smallest petal punch from Ruth's Tonic Rose punch and stamp set and lace, the DP is from stash but I think may be Kaiser.


For my second card I broke the habit of a lifetime and did some colouring in as when I saw this image it reminded me of photos of a little girl growing up on a farm more years ago that I care to remember ! I coloured her with watercolour pencils and some Pan Pastels, added some ivy and roses.

Happy weekend all.

  6. Beautiful cards Brenda. Those tiny roses are gorgeous - just getting to grips with larger ones at the moment (I know - years behind everyone else). For me the top one reminds me of the Wyddial carnival float when my kids were little and all the girls were dressed as flower fairies.

  15. I don't know which to choose as my favourite of these two - I do love your soft colouring in the second one with the sublet shading - your black ribbon in her hair then picked out by the black framing of the image is masterful. The pink ribbon bows echoing her dress ribbon & those roses making one imagine that the little dots on her dress might just be tiny roses. Oh well - that's it then - that's my favourite. In the first it's your roses on the lace over the green that catches my attention with those lovely little stamped foxgloves.

I have fallen in love with your first image - little girl dressed in petals, but both vintage images are lovely, Brenda. Hope you are feeling ok these days. Was your surgery a success? I hope so.
