Tickled Pink & Sugar Nellie Challenges

Hi everyone!! I have a couple of cards to share that I made for challenges but first I'd like to mention that there is new challenge just posted on Inky Impressions

Also - Vicki has some wonderful candy on her blog. Be sure to check it out!!

My first card is one I made for Tickled Pink Challenges and the theme is Black, White +1 colour of your choice. It's no secret that Black, White and Pink is my favourite colour combo when it comes to this theme. 

I used both Valentine Luca and Fairy Kira and trimmed them out. I coloured Luca using only greys - first time I tried this and I really like the effect. I did the single rose and the bow on the box in pink for some contrast and to match Kira.

My papers are a mix of My Mind's Eye 'Meadowlark' and Rusty Pickle 'Pirate Princess' and they've been inked with black soot distress inks, painted with white acrylic paint and machine stitched. 

Digital Tuesday - include a digital element -  It's A Magical World
Paper Playtime - Challenge Choice #2:  Use Pink & Glitter
Nettie G's Digital Gems - Use 5 papers (at least 3 patterned, 1 solid)
Stamp-N-Doodle - At least 2 things starting with "G" (I used Glitter and Gems)
Aly's Sunday Challenge - Anything goes
One Stitch At A Time - Glitter & Gems

Sugar Nellie's Facebook Challenge. I started this card for last week's challenge but mojo was hard to pin down when I did manage to get a few minutes to work on it -  so I adapted it for this week's challenge which is Embossing, heat or dry. I also used the sketch over on The Sugar Bowl.

 The papers on this one are from the Restoration collection by Crate Papers. I embossed one of the papers using the Swirls folder and then sanded it back. These papers are wonderful for sanding, so thick - not at all flimsy!!

The image is called Star Dust. I coloured her using copics and then added loads of Star Dust glitter. My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The lace and pearls are from my stash. 

Stampin' Sisters in Christ - use something you Treasure
Let's Ink It Up - NO DIGI and Embossing
Gingerloft - Use flowers
Totally Gorjuss - Pearls and Lace

Well that's it for me for today. Be sure to drop back tomorrow as it's the 17th of the month and that means it's Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Hop time!!! You can check out the deets HERE!!

Have a wonderful day
