Hot Pink overload


Hi, Erica on the blog today! I know, I know, me again... I'm not stalking anyone, promise. I'll keep it short and sweet today to make up for yesterday's rather lengthy post. Alright, ok. Short... ish...

Yesterday's card was rather clean and simple, today's card is anything but. However, I did use the same stamp set, Just A Rose, and the same label sentiment 'You Are Amazing' from the set.

















I started out by cutting out a pink A2 sized stitched rectangle, which will act as the base as well as a hot pink smaller stitched rectangle piece. Around the smaller piece I wrapped gold twine a bit randomly, to balance out all the pink. As much as I adore pink, there is such a thing as too much pink.
Yes, I did just say that... Shocking, I know.

I stamped up two of the flowers on pink flowery patterned paper and fussy cut them out. The sentiment got stamped up with black ink and cut out as well. To put the card together I got my trusted foam tape out and added lots of it on the back of the hot pink smaller rectangle. I attached it to the A2 piece on an angle and then added the flowers and the sentiment. At this point, I decided to use my latest obsession: Enamel accents! And boy, did I use it... *slightly crazed looked emoji here, lol*

This is a surprisingly quick card, well the making is but the drying takes some time admittedly. However, it looks rather complicated and unusual, doesn't it? You can make it less pink by paper piecing green patterned paper over the leaves and even another colour over the stamens. 

Well, this is my last post for October but I'll be back before you know it! 

Happy crafting, 

Hugs from Erica

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
