Think Pink

 Was it a beautiful day for you too? It was absolutely gorgeous here in southern Manitoba.  About 20 degrees C, a slight wind and SUNNY!

Today I'm going to show you a pink card I made this weekend.

It's distressed in a couple of ways. Since I can't find my distressing tool  (where do these things hide anyway?!)  I used the edge of my scissors to distress the edges of the card. I also sponged some of my TH distress ink onto the edges of my image and once it was colored, I added some glossy crackle to it.  I left it to dry overnight and when I saw it in the morning, I was so upset. It was all curled and ugly looking. I managed to salvage it though, by pressing it under some heavy books for a day.  That's a good tip for me to remember for another time.  The image is a Prairie Fairy image--Nurse Gillian. 

I hope you like it. I'm entering this card in a number of challenges:

  1. your card is sooooo cute.... Thank you so much for linking up with us for Link Up for Pink....

  2. Great job!!!! I was surprised the first time I used glossy too, another trick once its dry is to pas your image through your Cuttlebug a few times if you have one. Works for me :)
