Welcome to this month’s Fancy Friday Blog Hop! Our team is a group of stampers who love to make beautiful things. Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are layered but the one thing I can say for sure is that our projects will be fancy! If you hopped over from the amazing Susan Wong, welcome to the next stop. For February, we have an inspiration challenge….Think Pink!
I have loved this beautiful bird image from Strength & Prayers since I got it and I wanted to use it for a non-sympathy card. I thought playing with it in pink would be fun. I stamped the image onto watercolor paper and also stamped the splatters from Gorgeous Grunge. Then I started a loose watercolor with Pink Pirouette followed by additional coloring with Melon Mambo. I just pulled the color right from the lid of my ink pads using an Aqua Painter. Super easy to do, especially when you get to go out of the lines like I did here. After the color dried back a bit, I went back in and layered in some more Melon Mambo to add more depth. The sentiment is from a Paper Pumpkin set and I thought the font was a nice match to the art on the image. I added a small border on the colored panel with Basic Black card stock and put it on a Pop of Pink DSP base. Lots of pink here but you could use any color singly or a combination for a different look.
Now for the rest of the hop! I’m telling you….this team is the most talented group. You will be happy you hopped! Next up is my amazing friend Connie Collins. Her work is always extraordinary and you are sure to love what she created!
