Colour Creations - Week 39 - Petal Pink

Contributors to this blog hop are all members of Claire Daly's Art With Heart group. We love chatting, crafting and getting together in person. This is week 39 of our blog hop and the featured colour is Petal Pink.

I held my first monthly card class this afternoon and I made my card for that class, to feature a colour other than purple/mauve with Painted Lavender. After die cutting masking paper with Everyday Details dies (that's an Online exclusive bundle) I used a blending brush to apply Petal Pink ink to the cut out circle.

Next I stamped the blossoms in Petal Pink, extending the tops beyond the circle and with another flower stem, stamped over the first in Flirty Flamingo.

The stems and greeting from Perennial Postage were stamped in Gray Granite before the art piece was die cut with a postage stamp die.

Of course, it always pays to finish the inside off for a first-rate card, don't you think?

Next stop on this hop is my lovely friend Rosa Leydon. I can't wait to see what Rosa has made!
