at least 20 Shades Of Pink

There is a new blog on the block... In The Pink

Their first challenge is 50 Shades of Pink.

To start off with I painted my nails using the water marble technique.

To do this you use masking tape and it has occurred to me before that some of the bits are very pretty and would work well in scrapbooks or cards.  I saved the bits and waited for my nails to dry...

And then made this card with the offcuts.

Thinking that just the blank and masking tape probably wasn't 'enough' I then gathered all my pink glitters and decorated the front and the bottom square of tape.

I've just scanned the list of entries so far and they are all so soft, feminine and pretty.  Mine is not that style... but I do think it qualifies as pink enough!! 

Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. Hello there fellow Pink lover. Isn't it fabulous about the launch of In the Pink? I stopped in for a closer look at your card. I'm linked at #1 this week, I'd love it if you stopped by to say hello.

    Laura this is inspired! Love your nails, WOW! Your card is gorgeous, I've used a shaving cream technique before but not masking tape to provide the pattern. Thanks for the tip!

  4. Wow! I'm loving your nails, they're gorgeous. as is your card, very clever. xx

  5. Wow Laura, that's amazing! I've never seen that done before. I went over to your other blog post and onto the Youtube link - it's fascinating! I'm hopeless with nail varnish because I'm always bashing my hands and chipping it all off !! Ah well. One day I might try this. Love the idea of not wasting the masking tape, but making such a lovely design with it. Brilliant!!


  6. I came to look at your APR entry from last week (I'm a little late), but got stuck on this post instead. You are so super creative! I love what you did here.
