A good book

Hello lovely people,

It's Thursday again and time for your pink fix!  This week at In The Pink we have a fab sketch designed by our very own Rizzo...


I love a good sketch as it can take a lot of the effort out of deciding what to do and let me tell you, this is a *really* good sketch to work with :-)




As I was uploading the photos I noticed a couple of black specks on the card, which are not there IRL - just some detritus off my craft desk I think!  Anyway, I wasn't going to re-do the photos so maybe if I just ignore them they might go away...

This is the first outing for this Saturated Canary image that was kicking around in my digi collection waiting for just the right moment!  The hair was actually quite tricky to do but I'm fairly happy with it in the end.


The flowers were all white to start with and I coloured two of them with Copics to match the image/DP and curled the little wiry bits round a cocktail stick.



Card recipe;
Image: Princess Reading Beauty - Saturated Canary
DP: Maja Designs - Vintage Summer Basics

If you pop over to In The Pink you can see if you can spot the difference between my card and all the other...let's just say the other Pink Ladies all love that die...!

Thanks for visiting,

Hugs,
Kat xx
