Pretty In Pink

This week at Sweet Pea Stamps the Design Team are featuring the artwork of Brigid Ashwood. We are each working with her gorgeous stamp designs and I chose to create with this lovely stamp called Margox:
 
 
I love Brigid's Phunky Fairies range of stamps and I have a few of them. They are great to colour in and the characters have a real attitude to them that I love. I coloured Margox with my Prismacolour pencils.
 
 
I also added some interest to the image by using a Versmarker pen and White Pearl embossing powder to heat emboss the background section of the image. This powder gives a lovely sheen when the light hits it:
 
 
The design for my card was inspired by the circular background section of the image... I had the idea to layer the image over a circular aperture in my card. I decorated the inside of the card with pale pink paper that would show through the aperture... here's how it looks with the card fully opened:
 
 
I used nesting dies to cut the circular aperture in my card front and in a layer of white card which I had trimmed to fit the card front. I decorated the white card layer by flicking paint across it and then heat embossing the edges with Shabby Pink Frantage embossing powder.
 
 
To finish off, I attached my cut-out image over the aperture and added some flowers and a gemstone border around the aperture:
 
 
Brigid's stamps are available in red rubber from the Sweet Pea Stamps store and for this week only are on special offer. :)

Ali, this is gorgeous. She certainly looks beautiful in pink. I must keep trying with the Frantage - it looks lovely - but I struggle with it going everywhere even when I heat from underneath and it goes everywhere and I don't like mess!! Best wishes, Kym xxx
