Morning lovely peeps and I feel like I’ve gone back in time today – it’ll become clear in a sec!!
It’s that time of the week when we check out all things Papertake Weekly and today we have one of my fave theme -
Spots N Stripes
We are sponsored by the wonderful Mary & Andrea over at The Ribbon Girl and our winner gets to choose one of the special selection kits ….
… which you can see here – how pretty are they!!
So this is what I did - my new hAnglar kit arrived last week and well how could I possibly resist using such a little sweetie!!
Can you see why I said I feel like I’ve gone back in time?
Newies over here wont realise this but I used to use them al the time before I got Copic’ed lol - if you look at old posts you’ll see. We run quite a few PM workshops at Purple Butterfly so I do still get to use them and in fact, this is a card from a recent workshop I did and it just happened to fit the bill nicely for today’s theme.
In fact, everything on this card apart from the ribbon which I added after the workshop – is made using white card so every bit of colour on here has been added with a PM and the colours I used are ..
blush and dusky pink (skin), ivory and sandstone (hair), rose pink, pale pink, baby pink, cool greys 1,2 & 3 (clothes etc). There was much use of the colourless blender as well.
I saw these flowers on my lovely friend Jacqui’s blog and she had kindly put a link to here which shows you how they are made. They were coloured with rose pink and pale pink and I added a yummity Wild Orchid Crafts self adhesive pearl to the centre.
See the paper?
Well this is made using the pens as well, as is the card that I used to mat (I just went around the edges).
I just laid strips of finger lift tape onto some white card and then went over it all with a pale pink PM (you need to be careful that you don’t get colour underneath the tape). Then when you lift off the tape and dip it into the good old Glamour Dust, you have white lines from either side of the tacky bit on the tape and nice even lines of glitter from the tacky bit!!
Simples – and quite pretty I think.
And I used the new MS PATP punch as well.
I love ribbon – you probably noticed – and this has to be one of the nicest, prettiest ribbon I have ever used and I kid you not here.
… May Arts 38mm wide silky crush ribbon in pale pink and it’s available from The Ribbon Girl.
A Pink Petticoat sentiment which was printed onto Safmat finished it all off – I edged the card with a PM as well.
I was asked what Safmat is (sorry for not getting back to you Carol chick) and it’s a printable film (made by Lettraset who make the PMs) which you can get at most craft shops and you can print anything you like onto it. You then cut round it close the the edge of the printing and stick it onto your projects – it’s self adhesive. You then just need to rub it and it becomes invisible apart from what you have printed of course!!
OK so that’s me done today me darlins :)
I’m off to start getting stuff packed for our trip to London – we are off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz - and I don't know who is more excited, Kyla or me cos Michael Crawford is in it and I have never seen him live before. You watch, it will be my luck that it will be his day off :(
I’ll be back tomoz fingers crossed cos it will be a scheduled post and I have not always had success getting it to publish, but I’ll do me best and we will see what happens.
Enjoy your day and sunny hugs to all xxx
