Use Pink or Red Only (Simply Create Too Challenge Blog)
Hi everyone and welcome back to another challenge at the Simply Create Too Blog. This topic is "Pink and Red Only". Well, that was a tough one for me because I don't really like pink. But I started off blending Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks together using an ink blending tool. I also spritzed it with a little bit of water with Perfect Pearls "Pearl" mixed into it and dabbed it off after a few seconds. And I have to say I am really pleased with the outcome. On top of the distressed background I stamped the "you're amazing" sentiment from My Favorite Things with VersaMark and embossed it with Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder from WOW.
I also wante to include a critter and decided to go for the cute snail from Create A Smile. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and colored it in with Spectrum Noir (EB2, GB8, GB10) and Copic (R24, R29, R39) markers. I also colored in the little heart of the snail's shell with a gold gel pen and applied a bit of Glossy Accents on top.
To assemble my card I die cut the distressed panel with a stitched rectangle die from Avery Elle and adhered it to a standard white notecard. I also adhered the little snail to the bottom right corner using foam tape.
I hope you liked my card and I'd be happy to see your creations on the blog.
