In the pink

I was just viewing a few of my favourite blogs and came across a new challenge I'd not seen before.  The Creations in Pink Blog is not one I'd come across but, once I'd seen it, I figured it needed to be done.  Pink goes with so many other colours but the idea is that your card needs to be mostly pink.  Well, what's more pink than a flamingo? I recently bought a sweet digital stamp set from Whimsey Stamps called Ahoy Matey.  It was perfect.  There was a flamingo.  I'd even got him printed out.  Now, here was a potential problem.  Although I'd printed him out my printer needed some maintenance and he's come out more grey than black.  Oh well, I'd never tried no line colouring but I wasn't wasting a piece of cardstock so let's give it a go.  Well, talk about a happy accident.  I love how he turned out.  I'm definitely going to try no line colouring again. I've got to really I printed all the images from the set on the same piece of card.

I'm so chuffed with this.  I'm equally surprised that red and pink went so well together.  It was so nice to join in another challenge for fun and I'm so grateful to Shell over at The Camel's Hump for leading me astray on this one.  Bless you hun.

Thanks for reading.

  7. Great job on your no-line coloring! This is such an interesting color palette with the pinks/reds because you usually see some kind of blue with a nautical theme - I really like it! And the design layout is all ready for a sketch challenge!
    Nice Work!
