Pink, pink and more pink.

Well pink is not a colour I am happy using, but it seems to be very popular at the moment, 
so before I got down to making some future D.T. projects,
 I just had to have a play.

I enjoy joining in the Tag Along challenges when I can and the current theme is  ' Use Pink'.
This tag was mainly made with Graphics 45 papers,  trimmings and a word stamp.

So this was just the beginning of my adventure into the world of  'Pink'.
I have noticed friends in blogland using their tags by adding them to cards or pages etc.
Thank you for the tip folk and I hope you don't mind me using it.
This is how I used  my tag--

I dry embossed the base card, then lightly coloured it with Victorian velvet distress ink.
Next up was a torn piece of a pretty patterned paper, some lacy, punched, paper strips and a few flowers.

I will be sharing my pink fest at these challenges--
Pretty in Pink-- at Make my Monday
Flower Garden---at  In the Pink
Shabby Chic ---at The Kraft Journal

Thank you for stopping by for a visit. Your comments are always appreciated


  1. Very pink but also very beautiful. I'm another wary pink-user, but often find that when I do the results make me happy - and that's certainly what your tag does to me too. They do say it's one of the most uplifting colours (after orange, which I basically hate - hope this doesn't say something about my tendency for the blues!)... and that's working here. Gorgeous tag, and it looks great on the card too.

  14. I am not adverse to pink however I am fussy with the pinks I like in art and life - I favour the faded pinks, as though they have been washed out and faded by time however I admire when people use the brighter hues of pink as it can be so uplifting.
    This is exceptionally pretty as a tag and then as a topper on your card - beautiful results.

  15. Love the pinks :)
