Pink and Gold

I’m back with another post the second within a week, that’s one more than I did in the whole of last year !!!!

After making the decision to start blogging again my crafting mojo did a bunk !! but who am I to be deterred !! No sir not me. So here I am after giving myself a good talking to and having spied the theme over at Less is More Pink and Gold one of my favourite colour combinations I just had to have a go. So here is my go!

I used my Cameo to create the hexagon and to foil in gold around the edge. For the pink background, I used Pink Flamingo and Picked Rasberry oxide inks, and splashed them with water. The floral image is a Spellbinders glimmer plate . Where is the foiling you might ask, well as I didn’t want too much gold (this is Less is More after all ) I did some jiggery-pokery with my Cameo and printed the image in black and white.I used foam tape to pop up the florals and attached it inside the frame. Once again I’m using the Yana Smakula hot foil plate and die for the sentiment, I think I’m addicted to it as the last three cards have had the same banner. A gold pearl (not blob) as I previously referred it to from Pinkfesh studios completes the look. Thank you Vicky from Crafting Clare

  1. Thanks for joining the challenge at ‘Less Is More’ with you beautiful card. The monochrome flowers really set off the pink background and the minimal use of gold really works !

  2. Well no wonder youre never facetiming me these days, you’re too busy creating these wonderful cards
    I love the pink background and the “splash” idea, if I did that it would be a pink mess! The foiling is exquisite and you’re ready to have left it uncoloured,it stands out on its own. I love your sentiment banners too, so keep using them.
    Give someone else a chance now, would you, how can we keep up with such style and beauty?
    Love Kal

  3. Having just had my knuckles rapped for my card not being CAS enough for LiM (and I confess that it was true, it wasn’t) I have come over to see how it’s done. Only to discover that I get a mention *jigs about proudly* – but I beg to differ, it’s definitely a gold blob!! This card really is superb Marie. I love that gorgeous water flecked pink background, the shape of your gold-framed aperture, that wonderful banner and the perfect black and white flower outline. Just fabulous! Vicky x

    • Add a dab of nivea on those knuckles and you will be as good as new. I for one loved your card. Thank you so much for your kind comments they always make me smile.

  4. What striking vibrancy from the pinks and I love the black and white pretty flower against them. The banner looks great too Marie and Yay to the gold blob/pearl x.

  5. What a lovely card! I love the window to the pink background, and love how you’ve kept the flowers uncolored. Thank you so much for joining us at the Happy Little Stampers Watercolor challenge!
