In the pink


Morning Peeps, this weeks Allsorts theme is hosted by Susan who is 'In the Pink'. Our sponsor is Stamp Addicts who are offering a £15 store voucher for one lucky winner. 

Been a frustrating week with internet off more than on and not got half of what I wanted done blogwise, the joys of living in the back of beyond is we are last on the list when BT have problems.

Sarah and Vicky are on Hochanda at 10am tomorrow with some new stamps which I have used for my cards today. They feature Wildflower Posy, the one at the top also uses 'Thanks a Bunch' and 'Birdeez' and the sentiment on the one further down is from the Fabulous Flamingos set.

The card at the top is pretty simple, Pixie Powders for the background, three shrink plastic feathers which are in tomorrows show coloured with Chalemeon Pens, a twin bow and sentiment from the Birdees set.


For the above card I stamped the Wildflower Posy three times and coloured with sparkle pens, stamped the sentiment which I have to say I really like with the script font, stamped, coloured and cut out the birdie and fixed him on the sentiment strip.


My starting point for this one was to mask across the card and use DI's to create a panel, I then stamped the floral spray, bleached out the colour from the flowers and coloured them in with sparkle pens. Finally a bow and some liquid pearls.


As you will see from the above, next week we celebrate our 9th Birthday, there are lots of prizes to be won so I do hope you will join us and also share the photo to help us spread the word.

And a few more of my makes for tomorrows Hochanda shows.


Distrss inks and Glimer Mists for the background, feather stamped vith Versafine and heat embossed with details white powder. Sentiment, flower from SA's along with their Ayana flower in two sizes.


The base is a grayboard tag, covered with gesso and acrylic paint, some stenciling using texture paste coloured with Starlight paint, randomly stamped feathers along with other stamps as detailed above.


A tissue and glitter background, the feathers stamped onto acetate and placed over the tissue and sentiment strip.

Lots of takes on the pink theme from my team mates so please do pop over and see what they have made.

You've been busy Brenda! I particularly like the first card, maybe because these are my colours, but I know how hard it is to come up with a successful placement on a CAS card and this is just so! The feather stamp is great by the way... xx

Mrs A. said...

Some more lovely cards. Gosh I haven't done anything with shrink plastic for ages . Your feathers look lovely and l like the shades. Loosing the will to live here over internet issues. Lost connection to the printer now and wifi has completely stopped working. Having stuff on digital not such a good idea any more!! Hugs Mrs A.

Sorry for your internet problems, Brenda! All your cards are delightful, especially love the first one with that bold pink and the shrink plastic feathers, and also those makes for Hochanda shows! The purple tag catches my eyes with those cute birdies on the sentiments and the textured background, great design!
I think that your vacation is coming early... :D Have a fabulous journey!!

I love the avian theme of this collection Brenda, the feathers are particularly pretty. All our feathered friends are making themselves at home in various roof space around the place. I am sure they use Surprise for target practice when she is in the barn overnight!! Not heard the cuckoo yet though. My lovely stamp arrived yesterday...thank you so much xx

Donna Ellis said...

Wow! Fabulous creations, Brenda! I love that you use different colors and techniques in all your cards - I tend to forget what I learn LOL - The cracked glass feathers are wonderful! All the inky and water color effects for backgrounds are amazing - but I am in awe of your first card with its dreamy colors, magical background and lovely combination of blended hues! Happy Mother's Day and best wishes for a fantastic week. Hugs, de

Cath Wilson said...

Some amazing work there, Brenda - wow! Lov e the design of the top one, especially, but the others are just as beautiful in their way.

Hope your internet is back to 'normal' now - whatever that may mean. It's like losing an arm when it goes down, isn't it?

Hope you're feeling much better, too. You're such an inspiration.
