Let the challenges begin

Well this month over at White With 1, it's all pink, and the challenge was to use bright pink, with an artisan shape, and the only other ingredients - white!
Anyhoo, even though I have a darling daughter, I dont tend to use a lot of pink, I have added a lot of detail to this page, but unfortunatly the picture does not do it justice, the flourish is actually a strong metallic pink, but does look a little brassy in the photo,  I have also white enamel embossed around the edges a swirly design, and then dry dusted with some White acrylic paint (use a dry brush and a small amount of paint).
I have had the picture sitting around for a while, my daughter was sat on these beautiful Rose Quartz chunks at the Crystal Castle in QLD, we had such a beautiful day wondering around the garden's soaking in all the energies of the crystal's, if it had not have been so hot I would have liked to have spent quite sometime there just absorbing mother nature and all of her beauty. Fond memory's of such a beautiful place.

Here are a few close up's hopefully you can get a better look at it.

Here are more of my ingredients:
  • Artisan shape created using Heidi Swapp Mask template, with Pink Sherbert Glimmermist and Strawberry Glimmer Chalk, applying the brayer technique to even the tone.
  • Journalling spot from Hambly Screen Prints rub on's applied to transparency and then written on with a white gel pen.
  • Fairy title - 5 kids and a dog, crackled using Tattered Rose distress crackle. then inked with Versa Mark Opera Pink.
  • All edges distressed using Donna Salzar's new Distrezz It Tool, this is just fab love it love it love it, check out my other post on the blog to see a demo.
  • Heidi Swapp Mirror - butterlfy in pink of course ! 
  • Large floursih swirl cut from K&Co Studio 102 paper. 
  • Hambly Screen Prints - ATC Patchwork sheet
