Red Hearts in Pink

Click on pic to see detail


Today I inked up my beautiful Ching-chou kuik stamp Red Hearts and decided she would look good in pink as it's my flavour of the month at the mo!  I coloured her wings with Starburst stains in Alpine Icy Rose and Magnolia Magenta Gold (if you click on the pic you can just about see the shine) and the background in Icy Primrose Gold.  The rest of the image was watercoloured with Stampin' Up inks (Cajun Craze, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Regal Rose and Melon Mambo).  I then added a little more sparkle with Crystal Glamour Dust on the moon.  She was cut and matted with Nestabilities.  The pink background is card I painted with Magnolia Magenta Gold Starburst Stain and sprayed with Gold Glimmer Mist then ran through the Cuttlebug using Tim Holtz Alterations folder (Regal Flourishes).  The strip of bg paper is from K&Co Bordeaux Garden.  The circle behind the image was cut using my new(ish) Nesties Eyelet Circles and I put a little Doily on the top that I got from Poppy's Cabin.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is stamped with SU Crumb Cake.  The flourishes are by Sizzix (Decorative Flourishes) with added Debbi Moore Pearls.  I finished off my card with some Wild Orchid flowers and ribbon from my stash.
