Shades of Pink

This weekend’s Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge (wmsc91) is a one-layer card. Ooooh that is so hard for me. The only reason I attempted it was because their definition was a lot more lax than others, so I felt I could give it a go.

I think that freed me up and I actually managed a one-layer card!! Though, with all the pearls, I’ll still need to be careful mailing this card.

I trimmed the base to 4″ because I think the slightly narrower card is nice for vertical one-layer cards (at least with the idea I had in my head).

I used the heart border from Nordic Winter set and stamped it in a gradient with a variety of pink inks (some generational stamping too).

I used Chocolate ink for the sentiment. There was a time that I only used black for sentiments and I don’t remember how I broke that, but now I’ll use other colors – but I do admit, I still reach for black first. I really have to think out my card before I put ink to stamp!

I have to shout just how EASY it was to apply the Zva pearl flourish! A couple months ago I had tried a small flourish from another company and it was torture. This took seconds and it laid down perfect. I can see more of these in my future!

Thanks for stopping by!

love you

  1. So lovely….hee, pun intended with all of those hearts 🙂 The pearl flourish sets them off perfectly. Such a sweet card for a “mean” challenge 😉 Those one layer cards get me every time!

  2. What a great design with the graduated colors on your pretty rows of hearts Karen – the pearls look lovely over them and the chocolate ink is perfect for the sentiment! thanks for playing with the WMS sketch this week!

  3. Karen, this is a gorgeous card. The hearts in the different shades of pink look so beautiful and the sentiment and the pearls are a perfect addition.

    Kind regards
