I hate pink!

I have no idea how I ended up with a pink card but there you go! Stampotique have announced a new challenge site which is fab cos I love their stamps (although this month you're NOT obliged to use Stampotique stamps). The first challenge is to make a LOVE themed card.

I bought Marci recently and this has been my first chance to use her. I've used 2 pics because the UK light is still bad at this time of year and unless you have a fab camera and some idea what you are doing (which I don't) there's no chance! Sorry the first is a bit over-exposed.


The second pic is a more realistic production of the colour and also shows up the lustre from the colour spray I used. The whole piece is on a pale pink plasma card.

VERY pink, but I don't mind pink at all :) I love this, Carol and it's great to be able to see the glitz - brings it to life and makes it more dimensional. Bet it's much better in real life. Love the fonts used, too!

Isn't it funny how often we end up using colors that we just don't like? Then, the next thing you know, there's no turning back!

Really lovely and so sorry I haven't been by lately.

Lana said...

I know what you mean about pink! Great card though - I really love how you've put a few little zig zag stitches on the shabby heart! :)

TinaB said...

There's pink and pink, as as pink goes this is a nice one! Great card and I love the lustre. Do you think the temperature might rise just a bit if you took the 'snow' off your blog?! Keep warm and Happy Crafting.

Kaz said...

you do pink very well!! it's gorgeous, love the lustre spray.

Paula said...

It is a fab card. I never used to like pink but teamed with black & chocolate it can really look cool.
I think it works well with these images as the girl is so obviously grunge/goth & not a pink wearer!!

This card is really wonderful! I wasn't a huge pink fan until my granddaughter was born :) Now; I love pink! Hope you're having a good weekend! xxoo

Fabulous card Carol, IKWYM about pink, I'm the same with brown too!

I love this entry of yours, the pinks make it so very
Valentine-sy. Don't you just love those Stampotique stamps? They are so fun to work with. You can either do fun and up-beat or they are also perfect for Halloween and dark type cards. Thanks for visiting my blog. I've actually had you as one of my favorite blogs for a long time, I really love your work. It's very inspiring!
