Pink wire card

Good afternoon friends, I have another pink
card to share with you today. Now there's
a surprise I went for my favourite pink
 colour yet again lol.
I also added some pink wire too as over at
'Less is More' ...........

"The challenge this week is a 
and for that concoction we would like you to
We realise that this is quite a tricky one, so
 if there's no way you can produce a card with
actual wire on it, an image or die-cut depicting
 wire will also qualify!"

As most of you probably know I also make
 'wire' jewellery so I happen to have lots of
wire in my craft happy days!

I did a bit of watercolouring, added a few
stamped hearts and a sentiment. Then I
did a bit of random wire twisting........I
went a 'loose' look...and job done.

ps. Thank you for all your good wishes I
am on the mend at last now btw! Have any
 of you bought one of the small precision
 tipped  bottles for decanting your glue 

I bought one and almost lost the will to
live trying to fill it with glue yesterday.
You would have laughed so hard if you had
 seen me trying various methods !
 I tried a small funnel, it kept 'glooping' 
everywhere as a vacuum developed in the top
 of the small bottle. In the end I used a 
cocktail stick dipped it into the glue and 
'dripped' it into the small bottle scraping it
 down the side as I went.

Won't be doing THAT again in a hurry, I
will try and buy one ready filled ( do they
 do them?) or get a top to fit the larger bottles.

Anyway come and have a peek at my card.
enjoy your weekend whatever you have 
planned ;)

  12. Wow, your wire is like a modern piece of jewellry on a card; love it!
    I had the luck to buy some of those bottles with a good opening, so no complaines here; saw you try to manage that in my mind and sorry; couldnot help smiling...the things we do for our hobby.... Good to read your on the ment! Enjoy your week!

  13. You had me at 'pink' Viv.... and your card is fabulous - I love how you used the wire!

    And yes, I bought one of those bottles... but haven't filled it yet. I'll follow your lead I think! I can't understand though, how the nozzle doesn't clog after use... no doubt I'll learn as I go along... LOL!

  19. Lovely pink card with wire. Have not bought the glue with tip but have used it and it was not worth the effort and that was with glue in it. Enjoy!

  20. Viv, this is amazing. So artistic and pretty! If I tried to use wire on my card it would look like I ran over it with my car and glued it on the card. Yours is perfect...that's amazing! Love the pretty color and the simple sentiment. Thanks for joining us at CASology!
