Pink & Grey



This first card is just in time for Valentines day and is in a theme of pink & grey, fitting the requirements for the Less Is More Challenge Blog for this week and also the City Crafter Challenge Blog whose theme is 'You Matter'.

I have painted 5 chipboard hearts in different sizes with satin acrylic paints in pink and grey.  When dry these have been overstamped with a cross stamp in dye inks applying grey on pink and vice versa.





I have then added a single faux gem to each heart and stuck them in place in a cascade on a 5 x 5 inch white card blank as shown.

The LOVE stamp is from Papertrey Ink and was stamped in Versafine black ink.  I finished the edge of the card with a freehand wavy line in pink alcohol ink.





My next card in the same theme features a single cupcake stamped in Memento black ink and filled with colour from alcohol brush markers.  The white card blank is 4 x 4 inches.  The sentiment is also stamped in Memento black ink.
