Green and Pink

Good morning all, we made it through to Friday....

Today it is a new challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog....and our themes this time is......

Green and Pink....

Our host is a very special and talented friend, Beth.....

We are sponsored by Magnolia-licious...

So do pop over and see what our amazing Beth and the rest of the DT have come up with....

Here is my offering....

I started by stamping this beautiful lady from Clarity

And then I added some colour with Spectrum Noir pencils

( as always remember to leave some white areas )

Next , I grounded her with some charcoal pencil work and added just the right amount of glitter with a Clear Wink of Stella brush pen

Then I added some green ink , just a little dusting with my stencil brush and an oval stencil ( the inner part )

I also added a few star stamps these are from the Wee fairy set...

Next , I created a background....well us stamoers do like to just make as much as possible don't we....

I used some Raspberry Adirondack ink and a very lovely stamp,,,,the Floral Swirl

I had an idea in mind , so I looked in my box of embellishments, found this yummy wooden umbrella and added some colour....can you tell how much I love my Wink of Stella pens....

So now my favourite part....putting it all together....black matts and layers really do work well to make the art work pop.

Time , to play with some flowers , ribbon , the umbrella and do some arranging...

Here is a closer look....

I mainly kept to the green theme for the floral accessories...oh and a few gems too.....

I have to confess that this card then had a Birthday greeting added to it and a matching insert, because it was for a really good friend of mine. She loves to dance and I have been lucky enough to see her perform on stage....

I must get on now....off to Anglesey ready for our workshop tomorrow....see you soon ladies...

Have a lovely weekend all....

Do enter the Challenge if you can....

Enjoy.....and see you next week

Big Friday Hugs...
