Are you a lover of pink? I love to play with shades of pink when I colour, usually flowers.

This week, I decided to play with the AI Challenge – Shades of Pink, and made the decision not to use flowers! So here is my card!  Very “Girlie”!!! Also a great chance to play with 2 of my new goodies – a stencil and die!

To begin, I stencilled Studio Katia – Creative Stencil – Birthday Balloons using 3 different pink Distress Inks.

Next I cut the MFT Die-namics – Triple Window Peek-a-Boo Window & Edge so the stitched edge was on top.  The circles with the die was a bit small, so I substituted SSS Stitched Circles die.

The circles were then stamped with AI – Birthday Circlet MFT stamps (an oldie but a goodie) and watercoloured using the same Distress Inks, adding Wink of Stella and White Pen for added detail.

The sentiment is from Mama Elephant – Mimi Messages.

I was happy with the result.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a great day

Author: momentsofcrafting

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
