A hint of Pink

Sweet Linda Robinson is hosting this week at City Crafter and she has set a fabulous challenge for us ...


Create a project using Black, White or Grey with a Hint of Pink
I love this kind of challenge ... and isn't that photo inspiration just adorable?
So here's my card ...


I got my paints out for this one and splattered black paint onto white card stock for the backgound
then layered it onto black card stock


I stamped this image first and let it dry a little before using water colours to paint over it ... I liked that the water picked up some of the ink from the image and turned it a shade of grey along with the hint of pink


You probably can't see it in this photo ... but I covered the image in acetate before framing it and using some perfect pearls to adorn both the frame and the image ...
This is something different from me .. I don't use paints as much as I probably should ... but I did enjoy this and I quite like the result ...
Hopefully I have inspired you to join in the fun ... Check out the rest of the DT projects and that of our GD this week ... Sheila Burns ... then link up your creation up so we can be wowed by you!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting and leaving your lovely comments ... I really do appreciate it

The splattered background is a great idea. The flowers and the way you colored them are having a soft and elegant look which is your signature on evey card you create:) And I never ever get tired of it. Gorgeous!
Have a lovely evening!
