JM - Pink & Grey - I can do pink & grey - no problem !!

Just Magnolia have pink and grey as their colour scheme this week. Great - no problem, after all I had a trial run last week with my pink & grey card. Bet any of the DT's that visited me had a giggle, I certainly did when I saw this week's colour scheme.
Just had one small problem - papers, haven't got many pinks and greys so I had to do a little juggling round in the computer - didn't want to use the same ones as last week after all.
I had this little lady lined up for a blue outfit, but hey - there she was all stamped up so pink it had to be. TIlda is coloured with copics and I used distress inks around the edge of the image. The edge of the card is stamped with Magnolias New Year flourish stamp, the borders cut with Carla Craft Macaron punch, the leaves with the Sizzix branch and leaves die and the small flowers with the EK Success medium retro punch.  I used a flower stamp from the Stempelglede grunge collection in the center of the flowers and add pewter liquid pearls. ( Stood the card up before they had dried - now they've 'drooped' will let them dry before I remedy that). Must learn not to be so impatient. I finished the card with a small Rayher butterfly.

This is stunning Heather. I love everything about it. I did the same thing the other day with liquid pearls but it ran all over my image before I noticed. That's what I get for putting them so close to the image lol.
