Compendium of Curiosities week 18 - Pink

I didn't think I would get anything done this weekend as I have been away with the family to Ramsgate, but I have worked on this since being home tonight. It's not a wonderful photo as I have had to take it under a lamp, but maybe I will get a better one up tomorrow so you can see the true colours.

I have a wedding to go to next year in Cyprus. Richard, who is the eldest son of my good friends Margaret and Bill, is getting married to Sal and I have promised them a guest book for the wedding day. It will be a small and quiet wedding with a big reception for the rest of the family and friends when they get home.

Sal wants hot pink for her book, so that's where I have started. This will be used to embellish one of the pages. 

I know it's very different and not the usual vintage style I like, but I have used the dabber resist technique from the Compendium of Curiosities. The heart is a cuttlebug die, wings from a TH die and the butterfly is a MS punch. The flower I made from a punch too and inked it using worn lipstick which I also used on the background with spun sugar and pumice stone. The colours of the book will be pink, white and silver.

Please pop over to Studio L3 for the challenge and to see what amazing entries there are. Thankyou Linda for keeping this going, I just love looking every Monday to see what is coming next.

I hope you all have a good week.

Take care. Luv B xxxx

Brenda, this is the perfect wedding book page! I love the pink shades, and the tone-on-tone look you created is very elegant. The embellishments are great-- not overdone, just the right amount of texture to make it really fun to look at. Well done!
