Color me with Red, Pink and Black @ The Crafty Pad

Color me in Red, Pink & Black 
with The Crafty Pad Challenge this week!

Now that is a yummy combination on its own at the best of times.
But this week, it's the tune the girls at  
The Crafty Pad are playing along to!

And with a Joanna Sheen £10 gift voucher up for grabs! 
I know you wanna play along with us too! 

With a voucher to go shopping up for grabs
I thought I would get ready to go do some spending 
and crafted a gorgeous paper handbag / purse! 

I tried a new technique this week and used some shrink plastic! 
Never played with it before and it was a new one for me.  
I did freak out a little when it all rolled into a ball but as you shall 
see it all flattened itself out in the end *phew* :) 
I also made some adorable handmade flowers using my
favorite technique & the material is from an old chemise of mine that 
I have been hording but have now faced the reality my 
boobs will never go back to "pre-children" size lol  
And added a touch of pearls to 
finish with the posh pins.

I used a Core Dinations paper and distressed and sanded it down to 
bring out the flourish pattern and black core color.  
I also inked over it with my Brilliance Dew Drop Ink Pad
and the flowers in the bow are from my stash of 
Prima Pink Songbird Vine. (So in love with these!)

Today I also chose a Crafty Pad Image
Rose for 0.99p that you can purchase by clicking HERE
And I colored it with ... My NEW COPICS - 
Yes ... I have finally brought some and am staring a collection :$

I think she looks beautiful to the point that I don't know how I am 
going to part with it and send it lol.

Now ... It's your turn to show me Red, Pink and Black 
and by sure to drop by The Crafty Pad for some more scrummy
inspiration from the DT girls.

With no requirements to use a Crafty Pad image there is 
no excuse for not playing along with us!
Though we sure do like to see those images
on your cards!
