Pink AND Grungy?

Hi peeps,

I haven't had chance to get online to do some Blogging this week and seem to have missed loads of challenges but I did manage to make one for the My Time To Craft challenge this week, which this week is Think Pink. I happen to love the colour pink, not that many peeps would figure that out!! Not!! :O))

I have just taken delivery of some rather delish stamps from the new Tim Holtz Collection, so I just had to use one on this card :O)) I know that traditionally you would not expect to see pink alongside grungey things but I thought I would give it a try and see what it looked like!



I started off by colouring some white card with a pink Chalk Ink Pad by ColorBox. I edged this card with Wild Plum Adirondack ink and then stamped the collage image using Sepia VersaFine. I stamped a message which is by Penny Black, in the same way.

I coloured the Grungeboard skull and hearts and then edged with the Sepia ink. I cut a piece of pale pink cardstock and matted this onto the card. I added the stamped images, which I matted with brown paper behind to add a little contrast.

Thanks for this weeks Challenge - have loved making my card!
