Oh, a couple of firsts for me today. First time I’ve used this stamp set – Eastern Influences – and most definately the first time I’ve used this colour combination – Basic Grey & Regal Rose. I’m really not a pink girl but love how this came together. For inspiration I’ve used this week’s SCS Sketch Challenge SC266 … thought it was going to be a bit of a challenge as there are a number of elements however it came together quite easily. I originally coloured the flowers with the Stampin’ Up! Watercolour pencils however when I used the blender pen over the top to blend the pencil it turned the rose pink to a lilac colour so I went over the top with SU’s Stampin’ Write Markers … ok it made the flower a tad darker but at least it’s Pink! For more details see below … and I’d like to thank you for stopping by and taking a peek!
