I'm In The Pink..........................

Hi there!!

It's Choooosday! Yip, that's right, it is Digi Choosday again and this weeks theme is 'In the Pink'. I lurve pink, you may be able to tell from the majority of my cards, so this weeks theme was excellent for me. I decided to spice it up (in the lowest term of the word) by throwing some purple in to the mix as well.

This week I used the digi bundle 'Nikky', which you can get from the Digiworld downloadables Store - this bundle was one of 5 that were released to celebrate five fantastic years of Polkadoodles, I urge you to look at the other bundles, great bundles, fab price!

I coloured my image with Graph'It Markers, and this week I decided to slightly edge out of my comfort zone and try the fab dotty background I have seen other people use. I used a combo of three markers and then I swept my blender over all of it, I quite liked it, but then I decided I would take a step further and added in a pink marker too. I kinda like it, I know it could be tons better, but that comes with practice and as I said, I liked it, so decided to keep it.

Fantastically, I just realised that the pic above does not include the pink marker, you can see it in the final card.  The markers I have used are as follows:

Skin:  4115, 4155, 4170, 4145
Hair:  1270, 3110, 3140, 3160
Clothes & Boots:  4135, 4175, 6130, 6140
Background:  9102, 7105, 9502, 5110 & blender

I made an 8x8 card, and decided on a simple layout, showcasing the backing papers, which, as always with Nikky, are lush! I used the 'Bloomsbury' Tattered Lace die to cut my image out, I also used the matching border die. I also used Lacy Rose die and Venetian Floral, both from Tattered Lace. The heart banner is a die from Joanna Sheen.

I addition to the dottiness, I softened the white of the card with a pink tone pan pastel.  So there you have it, my take on Nikky and the theme of 'In the Pink'. I hope you like it!
