This week, at the Heart2Heart blog, we are Tickled Pink – literally. Our Design Team has been creating projects using all shades of pink and we are asking you to do the same for our June Tickled Pink challenge.
For those of you, like me, who don’t use pink very often, now is the perfect time to get those creative wheels turning. This week, I decided to go big & bold♥ with my patterns and flowers as I created a six-inch card full of Pink Daisies.
Like I said, I don’t use pink very often, so that considerably large floral pattern in the Brushed paper pack was one that I wasn’t quite sure how to use. Instead of setting it aside, I decided to challenge myself♥ to create something with it.
I decided to stick with the classic pink & black palette. Backing everything in black balances out the pattern, and adding big bold flowers helps to tame the design. It almost appears as if those daisies are sitting in a garden among other flowers.
I chose to stamp the daisies in Pixie & Raspberry ink using the rock-n-roll method, then added a layer of heat embossed vellum over the top. In the center of each flower sits a wooden button painted with Raspberry Shimmer and tied with White Twine.
The sentiment was kept simple and stamped onto a stitched circle tucked into a strip of Blue Skies paper. To be honest, I really debated how to add a sentiment to this card and avoid covering up too much of that patterned paper, but I think that the half-circle partners well with the daisy images and it’s a fun way to add a sentiment to a card.
When I was finished, I felt like I needed a bow of some sort, so I dug through my stash and grabbed a Striped Ribbon Bow from my Christmas collection. Can you believe that these are still available on my website?♥ I am going to have to go grab a few more.
BIG, PINK, BOLD, & BEAUTIFUL!🌺
This card has inspired me to use pink more often and I hope it inspired you♥ to join our pink themed challenge at Heart2Heart. Make sure to link up your project before June 30th.
