Phindy's Challenge - Pretty In Pink

Friday is Phindy day!!! And what a challenge - Pretty In Pink!

It seems that I hardly ever do a proper "pink thing" any more. I guess I never was a pink-pink girl. I DO own some pink hoodies though, just in case you doubt my sanity or femininity or something like that.

I don't look half as posh as this fabulous dame on my card - hoodies just won't cut it. Overall shape is pretty similar though.

The image is, of course, from Phindy's phabulous store. Oh DO check it out, I still can't believe my luck getting to play with her artwork every week!

Image was coloured with Copic Markers and finished off with Sakura glitter pens and fine glitter. Did I say "finished off"? I should have said DROWNED IN. The whole card shimmers and sparkles - the papers are either glittery or pearlized and I added some freehand swirls with dimensional pearls as well!!

Copic Markers:
Skin: R02/01/00/0000
Dress, scarf: R85/83/81/0000
Boa: C05/03/01/00
Background: BG10/11/13/000

IMAGE: Phindy
Coloring Medium: Copic Markers, Sakura Stardust pens
Inks: Memento
Paper: SEI
Accessories: Liquid Pearls, Stickles, flat back pearls, ultra fine glitter
Tools: ATG adhesive gun, Big Shot,  glue gel, Purple Cow guillotine,Martha Stewart scoring board

Now all that remains to do is wander off to Phindy's Challenge Blog and check out all the fabulousness on offer - our DT rocks!
