It's a whole new day and a whole new chance to make a pink card!
There's also a brand new challenge on at Fusion and boy! is it ever a doozy!
Check out that inspiration image! It's a gorgeous bouquet of pinks and creams! At Fusion, you can either play with the sketch OR play with the inspiration image OR fuse the two and create a card based on both (hence Fusion).
I just chose the inspiration image because I decided I needed a good shabby chic crafting session. There's something so fun about layering on a bunch of flowers and getting all messy with some mixed media!
I began by taking a rustic looking piece of paper and adding a layer of gesso to selected areas and some splashes of Distress Spray Stain in shades of pink.
I was also inspired by Pixels and Papers Frames challenge, so I busted one out.
I also found a frame that I wanted to use, but it was more of an orangey coral than a pink, so I gessoed that up, too. Gesso will eventually rule the world because it covers EVERYTHING!
I added some spray stain over the top of my frame to make it blend in more with my card and give it a rustic, antiquey finish.
Oooooh! I tattered up the edges, added some crinkle ribbon and layered on the flowers. The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter's This Awesome House stamp set.
Shabby and chic and oh so pink!
I'm also going to link up to the following challenges:
