The Card Concept #3 - Use Monochromatic Pink

IMG_3704_edited-1


Ready for a brand new challenge at The Card Concept?




Have I ever told you how much I love pink? When I was in high school  I went through a phase where everything I owned was pink! I even had pink hair that my dad made me wash until it was all out!  LOL  Anyway I am so excited for this challenge and to see what everyone creates for it.  Participants will create a card based on one of the six defined styles from The Card Concept and use monochromatic pink in your design. 

For my card I was really inspired by the pinks in the gorgeous inspiration photo. With Valentines right around the corner I wanted to create a card with heart. So I chose two colours of ink and stamped a subtle background to create the stage for my pink solid heart.  The camera was insisting that the heart was a bolder colour than it is.  I popped up the solid heart and added a few sequins. It is okay to pop something up on a CAS card, especially when you want it to stand out.

do we get to see a photo of you with Pink hair! I was also a pink lover for years then for some reason purple took over...my hair has always been brown (then very grey!!) And your card is gorgeous, so subtle yet stunning and perfect placement of the sequins x

Hey Tracey...great card! Love the cute hearts in different patterns and those sparkly sequins. I like that you used black with part of the sentiment...great touch with a nearly all pink card. I would have loved to see your pink hair!
