This week, Carol has gone all girlie on us and decreed that our projects should be "Pretty in Pink". Truth be told, I don't take too kindly to pink on the best of days and to use it on a Christmas card???!!! Eeeeek! Having said that, pink has been cropping up a fair bit on Christmas card this year and I loath to admit it but, maybe, just maybe, a little pink isn't that bad.
Anyways, I was inspired by this perfectly pink Christmas card by Jessi Fogan. Here's my "prudently pink" version. It's all the pink I can safely digest ... for now!
(Sorry for the bad pictures. White is not an easy colour for me to photograph.
I hope the black background helps tone down the reflection.)
|I'm playing with Clearly Besotted stamps ... again. It's turning into quite an obsession! Here I'm using the Pretty Poinsettia stamps. I used a Silver Metallic Sharpie to draw the lines for the horizontal band and the dots inside it.|
|The greeting is stamped with Memento Rose Bud.|
|Stamped the outlines of the poinsettias with Memento RoseBud and the, stamped over with the solid poinsettia using TH's Spun Sugar. To finish - some bling in 2 shades of pink.|
|Here's a full frontal for ya!|
