This week at Through the Purple Haze challenges the theme is to use red or pink or purple in our creations.
Here is what I have come up with.
The image is from Mo Manning and be purchased here. I decided to have a go at something new so actually used watercolour paints to colour her, I have never used them before but I picked up a tin of watercolours at a local supermarket ages ago and they have been sat in a drawer ever since so I decided to give it a go.
I had off cuts of the polka dot and striped papers from another project so used them to create a background I wrapped a strip of broad seam binding and lace around the centre to cover the join as they weren't quite big enough to cover the 8x8 card blank and then I matted the whole lot onto pink card stock. The corners were cut using a Tattered lace die as were the letters to form the word 'Yummy Mummy' I cut the image out using a spellbinders labels die and cut a larger mat from pink Centura Pearl card stock. The flowers were from one of the many freebies I have from various magazines and I cut them up and layered them up adding glitter and sparkly pink centres.
I am entering this card into the following challenges,

- I have been crafting since May 2008, when in desperation to find an unusual birthday card for my Mum, I gave up looking in the shops and decided to have a go at making my own. I soon realised that crafting is addictive and I haven't brought a card since. In 2011 I completed my certificate in papercrafting as a result of the work I did as part of the course I started entering challenges on line and in magazines. I applied for design teams and also started making samples for Ooh La La Creations for their shows on Create and Craft. I have now completed my Diploma in professional crafting and most recently been runner up in the Papercrafter of the Year 2013 a competition run by Papercraft essentials magazine, I don't have a particular style I like to use elements from lots of styles and techniques, although I do love all things vintage. In 2014 I started to move more towards scrapbooking to take care of the huge family archive of photographs that were stored in my attic. I have continued cardmaking and Scrapbooking through 2015 and 2016 but have also become interested in off the page projects. I hope to be able focus on these in the future.
