CrAzY for Color - C4C69


It's Saturday and time for another Crazy Challenge! Maria is our January hostess, and for this week she's chosen this interesting picture to use as a color inspiration challenge. Check out all the challenge details at the C4C blog so you can play along with us! We'd love to see what you create, especially because I think there are just so many options you can go with here!
I chose to focus on the beautiful shades of pink that show up in this photo, and created this Valentine card using my Clearly Sentimental about Love stamp set from My Favorite Things. The sentiment was stamped in Rose Red pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I used a Ranger Foam Blending tool to sponge Spun Sugar ink over the sentiment. I cut out a large heart with my Nestabilities, and the smaller hearts are from the Hearts a'Plenty Die-Namics from MFT. I added a button tied off with my beloved Divine Twine, and a strip of pink lace. The designer paper here is Bo Bunny.
Here's a close-up of the hearts.... I spritzed each one with some Perfect Pearls for shimmer.
See what the other Crazies have come up with today for further inspiration...


I appreciate your visit today greatly! Have a wonderful weekend!
