A Touch of Pink

A combination of three challenges today: City Crafter a Cut Above, Mojo Monday #221 and ColourQ #117 to create my card.  I have a nasty cold and it is slowing me down this week.

I used some of my favorite Memory Box stamps to create this and pink as my pop of color for the ColourQ challenge.  (Birch Branch Print - G1720, Flower Bundle - E1321, Alpha Background E996, Happy Birthday Candle - C1373)

The background was created by stamping the alphabet multiple times using black ink and not re-inking to allow variations in the hues of the letters.  I added a layer of white acrylic paint to soften the background.  The edges were sponged with black dye ink. 

A layer of tree branches and flowers were added over the background using black ink.  

A simple card for me. :)

Have a wonderful day!

  5. I hope you will be feeling like your fabulous self very soon; I think I have the same cold. I love the stamping on the background, that is always a very effective technique. It looks really nice behind the black flowers and pink butterflies. I love the touch a lace on the bottom too! Blessings~
