Pink and...

Hello lovely people,

I am back in one piece from my skiing trip and had one of the best holidays ever - great snow, fabulous food (and drink!) and such a wonderful time with friends.  It went so fast and here I am back in the usual routine.

But hey, there's nothing like a new challenge at In The Pink to cheer me up and our theme this time is...


So, we want to see your creations in pink with one other colour...but don't be shy with the pink!

I totally surprised myself with my 'plus 1' choice, as my fave colours to team with pink are green or brown but today we have pink plus grey!

I intended this card to be for my sister-in-law's birthday and once I had decided on the image I wanted to use, this DP just seemed the perfect match, so the colour scheme was dictated by that.

I do find it hard to pick favourite Saturated Canary images but this is definitely one of them; I adore her big glasses, cute dress and long socks :-)  I tried out a new combo for the hair too and hope you'll agree it's a winner!

Card recipe;
DP: Love Notes - Crate Paper
Lace: Irene - The Ribbon Girl (temporarily shut)
Flowers: from Wild Orchid Crafts
Foliage: leaf and swirl Magnolia Doohickey die
Sentiment: Happy Circular Sentiments - LOTV

Copic colours;
Skin: E000/00/00/11/21
Hair: E50/53/43/57
Eyes: B91/93
Pinks: RV32/34/R85/37/39
Greys: W series

If you pop over to In The Pink you can check out the fabulous 'pink plus one' creations from my teamies; don't worry, there's still LOTS of pink on show!

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Kat xx

I love the pink & grey combo. Obviously it's just me, but I found my eyes drawn to the pink flowers, away from the central image. Maybe they are too pink? Mum being picky-colour matching usually being just one of your many talents! Mum x
