Sweet Stamps- Think Pink (Shades of Pink)

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Think Pink (Shades of Pink).
 Oh how I love Pink...... But, I could not get the color right in this picture no matter what I did......
I stamped the frame and the floral image in Versamark and embossed them in White EP onto Parchment Vellum.  I also stamped the floral image in White Shades die ink on vellum- just a smidge larger than ATC size and put that piece behind the frame.  I fussy cut out the flowers and colored them in with Copic markers. Next, I applied Pink Highlights Creative Inspirations Paint over the pink flowers. The middle part of the frame has been pierced- here is a close up picture:

 I used spray adhesive to attach the card to the Coordinations Amaryllis cardstock (In the Berry Reds collection).  I added a bow and some Soft Pink Rhinestones.

I made an ATC too : )
 I colored on the back of the Vellum with the same Copic markers. I used stitching to adhere the vellum to the Coordinations cardstock.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:

What wonderful projects - they are both delightful Shelly, especially the ATC.

Emily Keaton said...

These are both so pretty, Shelly! I just love all the pink and those beautiful floral images :-)

Misty's said...

Oh WOW, these are beautiful, Shelly.
As much as I love pink I find it tricky to work with. I find there are so many shades of pink but my papers never seem to match any of my embellies or promarkers. Adoring your work on vellum.

the way you used the vellum with these stamps is gorgeous! The piercing looks like it took forever, but the effect is so luxurious.

Shelly, both the card and the ATC are stunning! I know what you mean about photographing pink shades, it's tough. But really - the fussy cutting of your floral image would wipe me out! So intricate and you did it so well. All of the details on the card are just fantastic! Thanks for taking the time in your posting to tell us how you did everything and where to find your various tools and supplies. Hugs!
