Very pink

Hello lovely people,

Welcome to the first In The Pink challenge of 2014 and it's easy peasy this week with..


I had a CAS moment again!  And I must have been having a real funny five because I fussy cut the image; although I love the look of fussy cutting I am not all that good at it ...except it was quite easy to do with this image!
I was lucky enough to get a set of Go Kreate dies for Christmas and I reckon they are a great way to add interest to a CAS design...with a little stitching of course!

I bagged this cute Tiddly Inks image a while back in a sale and couldn't let her go un-coloured any longer.  I thought she would make a great thank you card and I just had to go for little fishtail banners to add my sentiment.

Card recipe;
Shaped base: Go Kreate Die Large Frilly #2
Sentiment: Kaisercraft mini clear stamp set

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/21/11
Hair: E35/37/47
Trousers / ear muffs: R81/83/85
Mug: RV0000/000/R81 (YR30 for froth)
Shoes: T3/4/5/6 & T6/7/8

If you pop over to In The Pink you can check out the fabulous pink creations from my teamies and I hope you will share in the fun with our easy challenge; don't forget to use more pink than any other colour!

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Kat xx

Great CAS, Kat! It looks good. :)
I wanted to do the same with this image a couple of days ago... But just couldn't. :) I'm always scared of clean and simple projects...
Have a nice day...
