Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 15 - Pretty in Pink
The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs blog is Pretty in Pink (ugh, you all know how much I love pink!) I decided to make a tall tri fold card, I call it a Z fold (it is kind of a backwards Z) Anyway, I constructed the card first using this great paper from Heidi Grace. On the front I used Polynesian Sails Oval and matching Angel Wing, adding Anastasia Border along the bottom.
Isn't she a cutie? She is called Hand Me Downs and is from Saturated Canary Digis. I printed her onto Cryogen card stock. I tried to pay particular attention to shading and shadows. Copics used:
Girl - E000, E00, E11, RV02
Eyes - B12
Hair - E21, E25
Dress and Tights - RV02, RV04, YG05, YG07, V15
Shadow - Y00, Y02
For the center panel behind the image, I added Fanciful Flourish, Cheery Blossoms and Anastasia Border. I added some coloring around the edges of the Cheery Blossoms with my RV04 Copic.
I found a couple of good sayings about friends and computer generated them then die cut them out using my Silver Oval Stackers. I used the matching Scalloped Oval Stackers to create the pink panel behind each oval. Again I added part of the Fanciful Flourish and another Cheery Blossom along with two more Anastasia Border pieces.
Here is what the card looks like standing open, kind of a backwards Z. I added some pearls to the inside panel and Viva Decor Pearl Pen accents on all the borders as well as the Polynesian Sails frame.
I love tall cards and in particular this design. So much space to add papers and embellishments. Be sure to check out the challenge blog for more inspiration and for a chance to win a $20 coupon for shopping at the Cheery Lynn website.
