Inspired by Pink

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

For the background of my card I used a strip of sequin waste as a stencil.

I rubbed the same pink ink roughly over a scrap of white card the place a Stamps Away mask on top and spritzed through with a fine spray of water.

After drying the piece I heat embossed with a single stamp then flicked  on yellow paint with a small paintbrush.

I rounded a couple of the corners and added  the glittery heart from my stash.

I would like to enter my card into

Love how you've created the background, it's really interesting. I must get brave enough to flick paint. It gives such a great effect.

This is a super pink card Barb. I almost bought the clock stencil at the last craft show that I went to and I'm regretting that I didn't but it now. It looks really effective here and it's good to see it used with a different colour other than brown x
