Anyhow...back to today's post. You may have noticed that I have been a part of Inkspirations4U. I was very fortunate to win a pass through Sonia Garbutt....and I believe she has another promotion running for the next round starting soon. So, if you are interested in challenging yourself and having a heap of fun and gaining access to FAB tutorials...pop over and give it a go.
Some weeks back, I had the good fortune to meet the incredibly talented Sonia face to face with her 2 beautiful gals. I wanted to make her something special to thank her for giving me the opportunity to experience some wonderful things...as well as challenge myself further with pink!!! This is what I made for Sonia.....
This notebook is A7 size, but I still managed to fit quite a bit on it. The DP is a dictionary one I used for my Father's day cards here. To bring all the colours together I used my Tim Holtz distress inks in Aged Mahogany, Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo. I also used the Mahogany on the petals of the red flower do dull down its intensity as it started out Christmas Red. The lace is courtesy of a vintage workshop I did at Alice in Paperland's some time back. tthere was a MASSIVE tub of lace that a lady had donated and we could take what we wished and donate as many gold coins that we felt represented what we had taken. Needless to say I could have gone MAD, but did manage to get some intricate laces for a very reasonable price.
Across the white flower I stamped a small script stamp from Kaszazz in Vintage Photo. To finish it off I popped in a pewter brad. The letters are in SU Cherry Cobbler. The back is very simple....
Sonia also surprised me with something amazing that I will show you in a later post.
Thanks for cruising on by and I hope that next time....it is somewhat cooler. Take care all.
