Hi Folks

As promised here is the step by step for my recent pink card that was done in aid of The Big Pink week for Breast Cancer awareness.

To remind you of my Pink card here it is…

And here is the full step by step…




To start I took a rectangle piece of white card and used some picked raspberry and spun sugar distress inks to blend it all out to this fade in the above picture. I then used raisin adirondack ink and the script stamp from The Revolution set and stamped off the page in a random pattern, but leaving the top right and bottom left corner fairly clear.




Next I tore the paper toward me on those two corners that I left blank to expose the inside core. I used some of that raisin ink to rub those edges and also some Walnut stain Distress ink to darken them a little further. Set aside to dry.



I took a larger piece of white Card and glued the pink hessian I had in my stash to it to the left hand side.



I added foam to my first piece and added it to the second with some wet glue to stick on the Hessian really well.



Then I gave it a black mat to sit on which instantly makes the darker ink stand out.



I used some dripped glue with some Frantage embossing powders and glitter to add some interest to the the top right of the card as I knew I was going to attach something above this.



I stamped this lovely sentiment out and tore the edges inking the same way as the last piece with raisin and a little Walnut stain. Raising it up on to foam and adding it on a jaunty angle to the card front.



Next I took a plain white resin piece, which was a side on butterfly or moth one or the other and added some pink to it with a Promarker and the added glued and cover in glitters. This I glued above the embossing we did and to the to right of the sentiment.



Here is a close up




All that was left from here was to add a little breast cancer symbol in ribbon topped with a pearl and I tied a bow using some of the hessian taken from the edges of another piece and added a sparkler to the knot and Voila… complete.
