Fab'n'Funky Challenges #169 - LOTS of Pink

Hi Everyone,

I can't believe we are back to Wednesday again!  Where are these weeks going? - maybe it's just a sign I'm getting older!  I hope you've all had plenty of crafty time over the last few days.  I seriously need to get my crafty stash in order as it is slowly taking over my house!

Thank you to everybody who entered our challenge last week.  We really felt the love!  If you would like to check out the winner and Top 3, head over to the Fab'n'Funky Challenges blog now.

Our challenge this week is one that filled me with glee when I saw it!  The brilliant Wendy is our host and I'm sure many of you know I'm partial to some pink on my cards and the theme this week is...

LOTS of Pink

That's right - just use plenty of pink on your project and link it up.  I had so much fun deciding how to incorprate the pinks into my card. 

We also have two great sponsors this week - Lili of the Valley and StampArt Design by Kathryne.  I used a LOTV image called Garden of Wishes and it's the first time I've inked her up...

I started with a 6" square scalloped card blank and then added a piece of star embossed card that I had inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry (my favourite DI colour).  My plain card is piece of Coredinations cardstock and I added three gems to the top right corner.  I bought the ribbon from The Ribbon Kings at the SECC craft fair last year and I love the shimmer it gives. 

I coloured my image with ProMarkers in Satin, Blush, Sunkissed Pink, Vanilla, Pineapple Crush, Soft Green, Cerise, Pink Lobster and Pink Mittens.  To cut my image I used Spellbinders Labels H and then stenciled through the die with the same DI.  I added glitter with a Quickie Glue Pen.  The pink glitter was from Lakeland who used to have a craft range.  The clear glitter was from My Craft Studio.  I attached my topper with foam pads to give dimension.

I really hope you can join us for our Pink extravaganza this week.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x

Beautiful card Rachel. The image is so sweet. You mention your fav TH distressed ink...I don't have that colour so might have to go shopping. Looks like it's perfect for those brighter pinks. TFS, hugs, Pat K x
