Pretty In Pink 2Crafty July DT Reveal

It's time once again for me to share with you projects featuring beautiful 2Crafty Chipboard!

Visit the 2Crafty blog every day for constant chippie inspiration!

For this July reveal, i decided to honour the colour PINK!
Having 2 nieces, pink is very prominent on many of my projects and that's good because i just so happen to love it!

Get ready to get girl-ified! :)

I created my first layout with the Isabella collection from BoBunny which is such a pretty girl collection and has just the right amount of pink.

I used the large title piece "It's a Girl Thing" which i cut to fit my design and embossed with a flower print.  I then covered it all with Gesso and white paint and then chalked the bottom edge with yes... as you can see... pink!
The "1 inch Hexagons Sheet" is one of my favorite 2Crafty piece.  It's so versatile and each hexagon shape can be either covered with paper or painted mixed media fashion.  I used gesso and molding paste on mine before adding different layers of glimmer mists and liquid pearls.

Doesn't my niece Daphne look like a little Diva on this picture? 
The quote below is so perfect for this page and this picture!

 I treated the "Butterfly Swirl" the same way as the hexagons, but added a bit more gesso on the flowers and using my heatgun made that gesso bubble up for more texture.  I added a little gem or pearl in the center of every flower and they fit in so well with all my other paper flowers.

At the very top of this next picture, you can see the little butterfly which i cut from the "Butterfly Swirl" and embossed just like i did the title.

My next project is just as PINK as the first one!

This is a graduation card created as a special order from a friend.

I used a piece of the "Swirly Bird Branch" which was first painted white, then pink, then dabbed with brown ink.

 And here you can see one of the "2013 units" which is just what i needed for this graduation card.  You might also be able to recognize the very elegant "Gazebo".  With much hesitancy, I decided to cut off the top part and flip it over for my card (that way, saving the columns for a future project).  I love the way it looks!

I hope you're not all "pinked" out just yet because i have one more PINK project to share with you today.

I created this layout around mid-June inspired by the June sketch from My Creative Sketches which I shared on my blog HERE.

Let's take another look at the details spotlighting the 2Crafty accents.

Here you can see the title piece "A Laugh" and the 2 "Delicate Butterflies" (also seen in the image below) which i treated in the same way... layers after layers of different inks, paints and mists.

Around the page i used the "Flowery Swirl Frame" (I ADORE THIS ONE!), painted white, which you can see hints of here...

 and here...

 and here...

 and there.

One last close-up look...

And that was my Pretty In Pink July DT Reveal for 2Crafty Chipboard!
