Shades of Red


No, it's okay, you are in the right place, now breathe and don't faint either!!!  I've been challenged, well and truly!!!!  
I run a small craft forum (Paperplay) where we have a monthly atc swap and we'd been speaking about shades of red ie my pet hate colour wise - pink!!!  And I stupidly asked if someone wanted to pick a theme for April, so some kind person (mentioning no names!!) suggested pink and everyone else jumped on the band wagon and agreed, so what could I do!!!

Now, as you can imagine, my stash of pink is somewhat limited.  Therefore I used rusty rose fresco paint over grunge paste for the first one, the second one is a blend of spun sugar, victorian velvet and picked raspberry distress paint (I only have all these as I got the whole set), and the bottom on is spun sugar distress stain with the mopped up distress paint leftovers from the second one!!  

I'm hoping they will pass because there is no way I'm doing any more - lol.

No one would guess that you aren't a pink fan Sam cause these are terrific ATCs. Lots of work gone into everyone of them

Love Chrissie xx

Who could be so evil as to force you to create with pink!? Outrageous! LOL
Of course you have shot yourself in the foot by listing all the pink products you have - and making three fabulous ATCs. Hehehe.

Well, you may hate pink, but that certainly hasn't stopped you creating 3 fab ATCs - especially love that first one (maybe because it's only barely pink - I'm another pink-ophobe... most of the time!!).
