Pinks and Grey

IMG_2773 (800x600)

Mixed Media Color Challenge 6 chose two pinks and grey for our challenge this week.  It was more difficult than I thought.  Mostly b/c I don’t have different Media besides stamp pads in these colors.  What to do, what to do.

Hmmm…I have some very old liquid radiant pearls and just a tiny bit left of light pink  I added some rubbing alcohol to the container and proceeded to stipple brush over my DOTS stencil from MFT.  I did this on the cream colored base and also on the pink layer.  it kind of looks like mini star fish, don’t ya think?  Necessity is the mother of invention.

I wanted to use white stencil paste with my American Traditions sea shell stencil and color them but when I got up this a.m. I see I used translucent instead of the white…but hey, I kind of like the effect.  I took my SU markers and painted the translucent shells with the light pink and dark pink required.  Layered them up with both those colors and the grey and…hmmmm…I really like the way it turned out.

  1. Gorgeous! I love your dots in the background. Your torn paper creates an awesome look and Wow! Your translucent shells are so cool! What a happy accident.

    I am so sorry for your friend. That is a lot of loss all at once. Your card is sure to soothe!

  2. A lovely card for your friend - what terrible losses she has had in such a short time! wonderful textures on this!

  3. Love the dot background! It's very subtle...and packs a lot of punch!
