Red, Pink & White

Yes, that does say PINK in the title!!!  Over at Stampotique this week, they have a colour challenge, red, pink and white.  As you can imagine, I don't have much pink but I decided to experiment with what I did have.  This postcard is a blend of magenta and permanent red pan pastels. I used a stencil and an eraser to rub out random circles to reveal the white.  I stamped Daniels hearts in white and then went over them again with a white posca pen.  I stamped Heart Throb onto a separate piece of card, coloured him in with a range of pinks and reds from the distress marker set.  Gave him a crown and some sparkly gems.

I sprayed a blob of dylusions fuschia ink onto the tag and let it drip.  Stamped the string of hearts in blaze red stazon down the left and a swirl bottom right.  The main image, newt with lunch box, was stamped separately and coloured with distress marker pens.

I used raspberry pickle distress stain on these two tags as I swiped it across one, spritzed it with water and placed the second one on top of it and squished them together.  I stamped Daniels hearts in blaze red stazon.  Heart boy was stamped separately and again coloured with distress markers.

And finally I stamped the bla, bla, bla and the splatters with red stazon.  Daniel's tree topper (scary Mary) was stamped on a separate piece of card and coloured with distress ink markers.  She didn't get a crown!!

Over at Simon Says Stamp they have a theme of 'have a heart' so been as though every one of these pieces has a heart, I'm entering over there too!!!

Happy Daze have a theme of 'love is all around' for this months challenge, so I'm entering over there as well!!

I thought I'd gone to the wrong blog when I saw lots of pink lol.

All the tags are brill but the first one made me laugh--there is often some humour in your work that I love.

Best wishes Chrissie xx

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
