DYSU #54 Pink

I'd love to know who has this bus in their back yard.  If I had one, it wouldn't be stacked to the windows with stuff, I would deck it out as a fabulous crafting creative space, complete with coffee lounge and telly.  Jump on the Big Pink Bus, and join us on a Do You Stack Up! trip.... This week, the theme is PINK!

Personally, I'm not a pink girl.  I don't wear it, I don't have it in my house by choice.  But I love creating with it for others, go figure!

I so wish I could take advantage of so many offers that don't ship outside the continental US, or that are more accessible to us elsewhere.  It seems there are so many things that we miss out on here in Australia, because our retailers just don't stock them (for whatever reason).

This week, our sponsor is Stephanie Barnard, and her fabulous designs of The Stamps of Life. I love watching her youtube tutorials.... stop on over at her site and have a look!

Ingredients:  Pink Pearl Cardbase; Papers - Pink matt, Pink Paisley embossed; Pink Pearls; Clear Star Stardust Pen; Pink Matt Signo pen; Pink Glitter Pen...

I created a simple card this week, but I added a 3D topper/focal image.  The images are from a couple of Scrapbooking Mad sets. Printed a couple of times, I fussy cut and assembled the image with layers fixed with DS tape, and with foam tape for extra lift.  I accented various parts of the image with Clear Star Stardust glitter pen... it gives such a fab finish!  The flower was printed in colour, but I coloured the flower with Pink Glitter pen, Matt Pink, and a metallic dark pink.

The top layer of paper you can see, is gloss embossed with a fabulous paisley pattern.  I also took an embossing board and stylus that I received with a UK magazine, ad embossed 'sherriff' stars in the corners before finishing with pink pearls...

I hope you'll come join us in the PINK in DYSU Challenge #54...  Thanks for peepin'!
