Red Earth's Pink Weekend - 21st>24th October

It's a Pink Weekend coming up 21st>24th October and here's just a teaser of one of the upcoming challenges... but you'll have to wait and see to find out what the challenge is!!   Pop over to Red Earth next weekend to see what's happening or check out their Facebook Page where there will be a live chat!!

The beautiful and timeless Audrey Hepburn... I have had these postcards for ages, and this was the perfect opportunity to scrap one of them!

Here I have used some of the new Authentique Uncommon 6x6 Papers to create some packground matts and a handmade rose {using Donna Salazar's Rose Creations Die by Spellbinders}, they are simply divine! 

Also used:
Dusty Attic Arch Window Set #1
Dusty Attic Nameplate #4
ZVA Creative Rhinestone Swirls & Rhinestone Strip
Pink Paislee Mistable PP
Glitz Beautiful Dreamer PP
Glitz Beautiful Dream Title
Kaiser Sparklets
Green Tara Paper Roses
Prima Roses
Hat Pin by Tina
DMC Embroidery Thread

Donna Salazar Rose Creations Die, by Spellbinders
Martha Stewart Punches
White & Pearl Adirondack Paint Dabbers
Glimmermist & GlimmerGlaze
Stickles - Platinum

Chipboard Technique:
The chipboard was painted with the white and pearl colours, then sprayed with glimmermist {I mixed my own colour this time to get the right shade}, allowing it to pool and dry with a heat gun.  Once dried it was painted with Icicle GlimmerGlaze and then heated until it bubbled... love the bubbles!!

Donna Salazar Rose Creation:
This was my first attempt with this die... love Donna's flower dies!  I cut 3 each of the 1st, 2nd & 3rd sizes and just 2 of the 4th one.  Sprayed them with Pearl Glimmermist until wet through, lightly scrunched them and then layered them, offsetting the petals, holding them together with a brad.  The brad head was covered by glueing down the first petals and then the whole flower was dried with a heat gun and touched with some Stickles once dry!   Next time I won't use so much water to soften the papers... I lost a few petals... oops!!

Thanks for visiting, take care and
