CR84FN14

The  CR84FN14 challenge this week is  yummy valentine colors: light pink, bright pink and chocolate. 


Here is the delicious looking inspiration photo: 


The background was created using pink glimmer mist from Tattered Angels. The beautiful Vintage Medallion Art Stencil from Layers of Colors was laid over the glimmer mist background and Versamark was applied over and all around.  Heat emboss with a light pink embossing powder. Sponge edges of the medallion with brown dye ink. Stamp your sentiments on pink cardstock with brown pigment ink and layer it up! :)

The lovely sentiments are also from Layers of Colors and are called Happy Wishes art clear set

Another simple little card created using the colors this week:

The background was stamped using Artistic Outpost CrackerJack background another card that started as a card for my son and ended up being to feminine. :)  The little hearts are from Memory Box and the sentiment is Hero Arts.


For all the details on the challenge  go to the CR84FN blog.

Go take a gander at all the beautiful projects that the CR84FN Design Team and our fabulous guest designer for February have created.
