it all depends on the shade of pink...

Good morning everyone did you all have a fab weekend...we had a lovely family Sunday lunch yesterday and it was a double celebration Phil's Birthday (still no present yet!!!) and our beautiful Daughter starts her new Managers job today three weeks ahead of schedule, she has been training for it for ages, we are so so proud of her...I was supposed to go down to the farmhouse this week to continue with the decorating but Phil is away marshaling this weekend coming and he camps away so there wasn't much point was there, unless Phil wanted me to do it by myself, which he probably did lol...my card for today is Phil's Birthday card and a sassy one it is, I know pink isn't really a mans colour but it depends what pink it is doesn't it and this is defo hot pink, the fabulous image is a stamp from the new release from Whimsy stamps and is called Alice chains, shes fantastic isn't she, I used hot pink for her, I'm not sure the colouring really worked as I went for a dense colouring because I wanted it to look like shiny leather, the lush paper is from the Bo Bunny 6x6 paper pad Vicki B, the stamp and paper is from Bunny Zoe's crafts oh and by the way Nikki has a huge sale on atm so go when you have time why not check it out there's loads of fab bargains, I finished my card with a printed sentiment and a ruched ribbon...Phil loved his sassy Kenny K card...I'm entering this for the KennyK Krafty girls challenge and the A spoon full of sugar and Creative Inspirations challenges too...I'm having a crafting day today as I feel the need to do some colouring practice I think, you just know when you need one of those days dont you, whatever your up to have a fantastic day everyone

Hiya Mina! Wowzers, what a "hot" birthday card! I bet he loved it, lol! Your coloring is gorgeous - you don't need any practice! And I hope his pressie comes before his next birthday, lol!

xxxtglxxx said...

This is amazing Mina :) Love your colouring on this. I have this image and only visualised colouring it in shades of black (which put me off!) lol.

I find my colouring improves if I do a few images at one sitting, so I tend to try and get a few done in front :)

Good luck on the hop!

hugs

So, do you know shiny leather personally? And how about that chain? Mina, I am shocked (while grinning). Great card.

Marilyn said...

Va va voom Mina! Fabulous colouring and this is one of my favourite images! I like how you've used the same papers and separated them with distressing - that's a great effect.
Thanks for joining us at the Kenny K Krafty Girls Challenge and good luck.
