Colour Creations Blog Hop week 35 Petal Pink


Hello friends, welcome to week 35 of the Colour Creations Blog Hop. Every week the Art With Heart team has been featuring one of the Stampin' Up! colours in alphabetical order. This week we are featuring Petal Pink which is a soft pink/apricot colour in the Subtles color family.

For my first card I have used the Easter Friends stamp set, specifically the bunny image. 

I stamped in Soft Suede ink and coloured with Blends Markers in Petal Pink, Pale Papaya and Cajun Craze. 

The image panel was cut using one of the Scalloped Contour Dies. 

The mat behind the image is Garden Green and the DSP in from the Heart & Home pack.

The bunch of flowers the bunny is holding was punched with the Bough Punch, the stems in Garden Green and the flowers in Petal Pink. I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers for a bit of sparkle.

The second card I have to share with you uses one of my favourite stamp sets, Free As A Bird. I stamped the image and the greeting in Early Espresso ink and coloured with Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Old Olive Blends Markers.

I added a slight blue tinge to the sky by applying Balmy Blue ink with a Blending Brush. I coloured the White Crinkled Seam Binding with the Dark Petal Pink Blends Marker so that it stood out a bit more on the card.

The background DSP is a sheet from the Friendly Hello Bundle, which is one of the rewards in the Sale-a-bration Sale.
