OLW49 - Pink and Green...and never seen Ink!

This week our one layer Wednesday challenge is hosted by Jennifer at Styles Ink.  Our challenge this week is to make a one-layer card with any stamp (or stamps) that have never seen ink and include the colours green and pink.   Easy...right? Well, it could be, if I could remember what stamps have never been used! LOL!
I finally remembered that I had a set from Papertrey Ink that I just got a couple of weeks ago and I hadn't used any of them...then I had to decide what stamp I could use with pink and green....wow...my poor brain!  Anyway, here's what I came up with.  With it being close to Easter, I thought of those yummy "kisses" you can buy that come in pastel colors for Easter.  So...here's to you...Hugs and Kisses!! First I stamped the sentiment "Hugs and Kisses" on the card, then I stamped the little "kiss" across the card with black Memento's ink.  They're not lined up perfectly...I tried several times...even using my grid block, but I still didn't get them all even! Pooh!  I drew my usual little black line to ground them. (I have a thing about images floating on the card.)  I colored the kisses with Copics - R83 and YG13.  The little papers that stick out of the top of the kisses is colored with a silver metallic pen, although it's hard to tell from the photo.  Then, because I could...I decided to add a little sparkle to the kisses.  I colored each kiss with my handy-dandy little glue pen and sprinkled on a very fine glitter (sugar coating). And there you have it! Sparkly, shiny, "hugs and kisses" for all!  And...might I add...not a calorie to be found!!  

Thanks so much for stopping by! Love it when you leave a comment...it makes me happy all day!  Until next time...

Hugs!


Pin It!
