CBC - Women/Shades of Pink


This weeks Created Byhand Challenge - found either on the Created Byhand blog or at Quietfire Creations Forum - is Women and/or Shades of Pink.  My finished card is about 7 5/8" x 5 1/4".  Old sheet music for the background - tore the edges by placing a ruler on the paper and tearing against it... the edges are inked first with Distress Ink (DI) spun sugar and then less wide with DI brushed corduroy.  The collage image is punched out with a 2 1/2" circle scallop, the sides cut even with the picture and edges inked with brushed corduroy.  The pink scalloped circle under the image is cut with a Spellbinders die.  Hope perches in the soul (one of Quietfire's new stamps) is stamped onto Prima Fairy Flora cardstock with Archival ink jet black.  The edges are inked with brushed corduroy and a scrap piece of music paper glued across below the quote.  This is layered onto a pink panel, edges also inked with brushed corduroy, layering in the collage image and pink circle as shown on the corner.  The bird and wing are die cut from grungepaper (Sizzix Tim Holtz caged bird die).  The bird and wing are inked with DI victorian velvet and worn lipstick with brushed corduroy on the edges.  The legs and branch are inked with DI walnut stain and black soot along the bottom edge.  The wing is stamped with music image using jet black ink. For the eye I dotted black Glaze pen. When I'm inking with Distress Inks I always use a blending tool and foam.
