Guest Designer for The Color Hues Challenge #38 - Pink and Green


Hello everyone.  I’m back this week with another guest designing (GD) post.  This time I’m thrilled to be joining the team at The Color Hues (TCH) for challenge #38 - Pink and Green


Of course it had to be April Fools today!  I could have sworn someone was playing a trick on me because it was quite the ordeal to create my card. 😂  I just received my order containing the gorgeous Rarest Rose stamp set from Gina K Designs and I was determined to use it right away.  After having to start over and then managing to save my second attempt, my mini slimline floral birthday card was finally done! 


The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a mini slimline panel (3.25”x6.25”) trimmed from Xpress It cardstock.  This turned out more dramatic than I had planned, but to save my second card that had a green alcohol ink smear on it, I coloured the background black!  Colouring was done with Copic Sketch markers.  

Pinks - RV000, RV00, R81, R83, RV25
Greens - YG67, YG63, YG61 | BG05, YG06, YG03, YG01 | G28, YG17, YG07 
(hard to tell against the dark background, but with 3 different style leaves, I used 3 different blending combos)
Grays - C4, C2, C00 (for shading the white flowers) 
Black - 100


The sentiment from Waffle Flower Essential Sentiments was stamped with Hero Arts Unicorn white ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Added clear shimmer to the pink flowers using a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen.  Embellished with some clear Raindrops from Studio Katia to finish.


I want to thank Nancy and TCH team for having me GD today.  To see the inspirations from the designers and/or link up your entry, click HERE.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
