Put your shades on because I am about to post a very pink card! I made this one for the Stampin In Your Jammies party that is taking place in the Paper Pretties forum. In specific it is a color challenge to use light pink, vanilla and brown. I used a bit of vanilla, a tad of brown and a heaping of pink. What do you think, is it too much? :)
Here is an up close look at the background I created using the Faux Silk Technique. I stamped the hearts from Sealed with a Kiss multiple times in Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink on tissue paper and then colored the hearts with a couple of pink markers. I also sponged a bit of Regal Rose all over the tissue paper to add even more color. I then crumpled the tissue paper and smoothed it back out before adhering it to a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I had run through my Zyron sticker maker machine. Very pink, no? But I wasn't finished! I layered the background on Chocolate Chip and added some faux stitching using the mat pack, paper piercer and a white gel pen.
This is what the finished card looks like after I added some ribbon, a sentiment and a couple of accent circles. I just have to note that I must have been in a two by two frame of mind when I made this card: two strips of ribbon, two circle accents and two brads on the edge of the sentiment. That wasn't my intention when I started the card but it worked out in the end!
