Pink and Blue

Having a busy day yesterday making a couple of cards to post over the new few days, packing for Scrapbuddies crop today at Mychette in Surrey and trying to finish a surprise present which involves proper sewing!
This was one of the cards I made for LOTV pink and blue challenge, gosh it was difficult to find a range of papers that did both and I not sure this blue is really blue but more turquiose.
The sketch is good old Sketch Saturday wasn't too sure on it but turned it and I think it worked pretty well.
Papers are Cosmo Cricket Delovely, funky flower punch and the sentiment is off an old Hero Arts clear set I think.
Recently I had a couple of questions asked about what card I use for my images, its 160gsm card from Staples its quite thin but perfect for layering, word of warning if you love lots of layers of colouring it's not very forgiving and it starts to break down after 3 colours.
I don't use Pinflair it costs far too much for the amount I use, I use Silicone glue with orange or blue writing on ususally from Craft Creations they're the only ones that don't leave a water mark on the thin card I use. Nor do I use a syringe thingy like Pinflair using, a cocktail stick is my tool of choice.
Off to do a bit of scrapbooking now see you tomorrow.

  24. Another Lovely card Debby, I just looked at your CAS Christmas cards and their lovely too...made me smile when you said that's why you do 3D; many of my images end up "popped up on foam dots" because I've stuffed up a background, lol. I think this paper is definitely blue...sea-blue ;-) Dee
