50 Shades of Pink



Found a new Challenge blog this week called In the Pink
 Their very first Challenge is 50 shades of Pink.
Now this is a colour I am not comfortable using, so this was a challenge for me.
However I think I might just be changing my mind in future.
The layers are Kanban cardstock, the remains of an assorted pack that I kept pushing to the bottom of the pile because it was pink
.To colour the webbing, I used Victorian velvet distress ink to lightly  shade it.
The image is a Hobby Art stamp, embossed with pink powder and coloured with watercolour paints.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look.
I always appreciate your comments.

  12. Hello there! 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.

    Hi Meggymay, I'm so glad you tried the pink, it looks fabulous, your watercoloured stamp looks fabulous, I like the white embossing, lovely fabric trim under the image.

    Cheers,
