Pink & Gray

Today the Midweek Throwdown Color Challenge at Operation Write Home was to use the colors of Pink & Gray/Black in a card. Normally I don't find time to do these challenges but today I was inspired by the colors and decided to make a card using them and lots and lots of layers.


The stamps and pink card stock and the pattern paper used on this card are all from Gina. K. Designs. I added some more sponging of pink ink to the pattern paper to make it a bit brighter. And, the gray card stock is unknown but it has tiny flecks of glitter which are embedded so they don't rub off. I did the test on it and no problem at all.

The stamp set I used from Gina K. Designs is one of my favorites as not only does it have such a beautiful floral image but it has awesome little sentiments to go with it. It is called One In A Million. I stamped the image with Versafine Smokey Gray ink. Then I colored in the image with Marvy Le Plume water based markers. In each petal of the flowers I took and added some white ink with a white gel pen, I added gray pearls to the centers of the flowers. On the center narrow panel of layered papers I added white pearls.

I am entering this card in the Mix It Up Monday Stamp TV challenge in which we are to use seven layers or more. I am also adding my card to the Midweek Throwdown Challenge.

Thanks for looking. And, I love all the wonderful comments you leave.

God bless,
Verna

  10. I'm not big on pink but this combo is stunning. The smokey grey is perfect to tone down the vibrant pink. End result = an elegant card!.
