Lots of Pink

Hello there!  I've got two cards to share today.  First up uses the colours from ColourQ and the sketch from MFT Card Challenges.  I love this little winged piggie - so darn cute!  I paper pieced him, outlined him with a pink marker and added some sparkle to his wings with Star Dust Stickles.  I'm also going to play along with the CAS challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Textured White) Bazzill, (White) Papertrey Ink, (Pretty In Pink, Strawberry Slush, Brushed Silver, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Pig & sentiment from Hog Heaven) My Favourite Things
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Circle) Avery Elle
Marker:  (R11) Copic
Glitter:  (Star Dust Stickles) Ranger
Gems:  Recollections

I started out with the above ColourQ colours for this card too but the inked strip came out a lot darker than I expected.  I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch but I rotated it 180 degrees.  I'm also playing along with the current Time Out challenge - Theme of breast cancer awareness and/or friendship with the Optional Technique Twist of embossing and/or pink.  These stamps from Paper Smooches are part of a great set of encouraging words and images - perfect for the Time Out challenge.

That's it for today.  See you tomorrow for CASology!    

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Rose Red) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment & gloves from Hope) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Pretty in Pink) Stampin' Up
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow, (Silver) Ranger
Twine:  The Twinery
Gems:  Recollections
