Hello, friends! I'm so glad to be joining in on Papertrey's "Pretty in Pink" Blog Hop today. I'm not really a pink kind of girl, but the inspiration board was fantastic, and I had several ideas I wanted to try out for today's hop.
Time only allowed for one card, but I'm happy that I got this one done! :)
I combined flowers and leaves from Bigger Blooms, Birds & Blooms, and Turning a New Leaf on my project. Even then I found myself wanting for a few other images, so I stamped some images twice, overlapping them to create some new flowers. For example, Birds & Blooms has a 3-leaf image that I stamped twice to make a 6-petal flower. I did a practice run on some scratch paper and ended up liking that one a bit better...funny how that happens sometimes. Quick question before I go -- I had planned to use Raspberry Fizz on my card as my dark pink, but when I stamped it, I could hardly tell a difference between it and Hibiscus Burst. For those of you who have both inks, is there a noticeable difference when you stamp the two colors? My Raspberry Fizz is less than a year old and I haven't used it much, but I'm wondering if maybe it's drying out and that is why the colors are looking so similar. Any ideas? Thanks for your help! Happy hopping!
