Colour Dare 431 - Inks and Pinks!

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 431! 

This week, it's all about pink (plus one other colour). Neutrals, Metallics, Black and White are free to use on your project. 

I began by using two Distress Oxide inks to create an ombre background. That was then die cut using the Stitched Lattice Background thin cut. My second colour is Clover so I backed the background die cut with Clover cardstock. A flower was stamped, coloured and fussy cut, along with a few leaves. The sentiment was stamped in Clover and that piece along with a Clover background were both die cut. I added some Silver Embellishing Thread behind the flower and stamped a little heart on the sentiment piece. The lines of the flower were brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush and a tiny sparkle was added to each of the small circles. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use pinks!
