Pink Tuesday.....

Hello,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. How hot was it so gorgeous in that sunshine. Today I have made a card using one of the hAnglar & stAnglar images my beautiful son Tom bought me for my birthday.


I have coloured my image with distress ink pads stamped with versafine black onyx onto Waterford water colour paper. I have distressed the background and everything on my card with walnut stain. I glimmer misted the paper doily with iridescent gold. The stickle glue I have used is star dust. The die cut behind my image is a nestie. The leaves and butterflies are martha stewart. The border is punched with a fiskars punch.


I wish you all a fabulous day and thank you so much for visiting me.

love

inks used
skin - tattered rose, antique linen
hair - walnut stain, black soot
clothes - tattered rose, weathered wood

Velta said...

Sry I did not make myself clear on Luca's name...Does he have a middle name? And is Luca a nickname or his real name? The reason I am asking is because that is one of the best "boy" names that I have ever loved...and looking at his precious face, I swear that name suits him to a T!!!
