Some news and a really tough card!

First up my really good news is that I am honoured and delighted to be featured in Craft Stamper magazine this month with an easel clock card and even better I was one of the editors picks, fankoo Katy! Hope you like the feature. Here's a little sneak peak of the project whch you'll find on page 38 of the October 2010 issue :)

Next up a *really* I mean *REALLY* hard card for me coz its PINK! Yes yes I know I do pnk sometimes but it still ends up dark so I really wanted to challenge myself to keep it candy pink. I *nearly* did it although I went for a more coral look on Tilda but kept the papers fairly light which believe me was sooooooooo hard!

Tilda is coloured with promarkers, the background I did with green and blue aqua markers (only two I own lol!) Details I've added are glamour dust on the wings and flower soft on the headband and flowers. The matting I made with a coral promarker and a white souffle pen and I've used ickle mirror mosaics. Flowers have diamond stickles on and card has had a squirt and then some of pearl glimmer mist.

Would like to enter into the following...

Stamp Something - Something cute

OSAAT - Girly

Oh Alice - Sparkle

Pocket Full of Posies - Winged things (entry 2)

Just Magnolia - Anything goes

Love the clock - I am not a pink fan either! Lovely work! Your easel card is lovely - thanks so much for playing along with Oh, Alice!

P.S. Blog is lovely but I had to highlight all the text to be able to read the white text on top of pale aqua, took me a while to hunt up the comments link. How about a switch to black text? :-) Email me if you need to know where the setting is!
