Colour Dare 285 - All About Pink!

Welcome to another Colour Dare Challenge! 
This week's palette is about pink - lots and lots of pink (well, a little bit of light grey thrown in for good measure, and of course black and white if you desire). 

I decided to go back to a retired stamp - A Budding Friendship, for my flowers. I love the two-step stamping process and the ability to use second generation stamping to make the inside of the flowers a lighter shade. This set is terrific in that the inner stamp makes the flowers look quite realistic because it doesn't completely fill them in with colour - it has some bare spots and I really like that look. I fussy cut the flowers and stamped the centres using Pebble ink. 

I used Chelsea Gardens Cardmaking for the "greenery", which I coloured in using a marker that is the same colour as the grey shade, Pebble. 

The arrangement is set on a background of black glitter paper and then on Raspberry cardstock and finally on a white card base. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the palette shown above. 
Use all and only the colours shown - you may also add Black and White if desired but do not add any other colours. 

You have until April 5 at 10PM EST to link up your project.

  1. LOVE the flowers against the black glitter paper. The shimmer on the flowers is great, too!

  2. Wow! I love how you used the black glitter paper to make the flowers really pop! Wonderful card!

  3. Those pinks really look fantastic against the black background and love how you brought in the pebble for the leaves. Very pretty.
