Pink again!

Had another week of not getting a lot done in the card making line - but the garage is a bit tidier!
A couple of cards this week, another pink one for the 2 Sketches for You challenge and a transport theme for the Tanda Teaser this week.

This card was inspired by the 2S4Y challenge this week. It is not exactly as per the sketch but has similar elements.

I used stamps from one of Tanda's Art Deco sets for the centre and the corners. Stamped onto pink card with Versamark ink then embossed with white. Layered each element on wine card. The strip across the middle was punched with a Fiskars scallop edge punch and layered with pink, brown and white ribbon.

Unfortunately the colours have not come through as bright as they are in real life.

The second card is for the Tanda Teaser this week.
The theme is Transport Delights. The stamp is one that was sent to me by Carol from Hamilton. she sent a really exciting bundle of stamped images and punched shapes the other day. Thank you Carol!

I edged the stamped image with Tim Holtz distress inks - Aged Mahogany, Antique Linen and Black Soot. The key was another image from Carol and I used a gold lame Smooch ink to add a touch of gold colour to that. Attached the key with a gold cord attached to a round paper clip. Again, the colours are not as bright as they look in real life.

I have been playing with a Photo Effects Editor program suggested to me by the lovely Sue Law (from Tanda Teaser Forum). I am quite pleased with the effects you can get on photos.

Janet these are lovely, how wonderful of your friend to send you such great images, that card lends its self to the distress inks and the whole transport theme.

The pink lady is one of my all time favourite images and it works so well with the treatment you have given it. Great cards love them both.

Hi Janet...the pink lady was the stamp that got me into Tanda Stamps in the first place...I love her to bits!..She works well on shrink plastic too if you fancy playing. Love your transport card, lucky you getting such a lovely image sent to you!
