In the Pink

Hello all. I was suppose to post this card a week ago, but failed to write it down in my calendar, hence it was not done. So, I am back today to post it.

This is part of the Random Act of Cardness for February. The word for my day is "Pink", and I think one could say this card has pink. It has Opera Pink to be exact, a beautiful colour of watercolour from Daniel Smith watercolours. Kuretake Zig Clean Colour Brushes have a Pink colour which is very close to this colour if you happen to have it.

I decided to use the Big and Bold Anemone from Colorado Craft Company. I have had this stamp for awhile and have never put any ink to it, so this was a good time as I think it looks fabulous in the pink.

When deciding on what to stamp I knew I wanted the flowers, and only a small portion of the background, and this is the layout I came up with. Using Arches cold press watercolour paper I stamped with VersaMark Embossing Ink and heat embossed using White embossing powder.

I first painted the flowers, giving them 3 layers of colour. I wanted the background white, so I painted using Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleedproof White watercolour, again doing 3 layers. I went around the pieces from the background, being sure to only paint the flower parts doing the same for the background by only painting the background parts.

Once the layers were dry I splattered with the white watercolour, using a larger brush to get some larger splatters, and a smaller brush for smaller splatters.


I matted my piece with Gina K Design black cardstock and attached to a pink card base. I then die cute the "miss you" sentiment from Arches watercolour paper, painted white and attached it to a black strip of card and attached to the card using foam tape.

This gives the stamp a completely different look, which is a great way to stretch your stamps and get more bang for your dollars.
