CAS Colours and Sketch #232 - Colour Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Another new 2017-18 In-Color for you to try with this week's CC&S challenge.  This one is Powder Pink, which reminds me of the pink ballet leotards are made in.  It's very similar to Blushing Bride, but with a little less brown undertone.   I have to admit, this isn't my first card.  It's not even my second card!  The colors challenged me a bit because I was determined to make the Powder Pink and Soft Sky the feature colors.

I worked on watercolor paper using the smoosh technique with Powder Pink and Soft Sky inks.  I applied the ink to a scrap of clear acetate, spritzed the paper with water and let the inks work their magic.  Because the colors are soft, it needed a little more dimension. Using a very old SU stamp,  the splash of extra dots were created by stamping directly on the paper.

The Night of Navy birthday script is a die from MFT and the border die is from Avery Elle.

I hope you will come and play in the gallery this week - but first, pop by the CC&S blog and peek at the rest of the DT's creations!
