Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #196


Greetings and Salutations!  Edna is back on the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers blog with a twist on our annual Pink challenge.  Rather than Pink Halloween our prompt this fortnight in October is E is for Everything Pink.  

We are looking for an abundance of pink on your cards.

In true Sisterhood Spirit I went "full on" Pepto Bismol!

I began by ink blending three pink hues of Distress Oxides onto a piece of white cardstock which I then used to die cut my vintage phone elements.  I die cut the handset and phone again three times in black cardstock which I stacked under the pink for some shadow and dimension.  The background began with a panel of pink cardstock which I stamped with the text background before heat embossing it in white.  I then used the same three Oxides to ink blend the background.  The sentiment was cobbled together using stamp sets from two different companies.  I stamped it in black onto a blended panel, heat embossed it in clear and then cut it into a wide strip to use as grounding for my phone.  I finished the card off with a triad of my favorite clear droplets.

I invite you to visit our blog loads more pink inspiration.  We'd love to see your pink creations in our gallery!
