Pretty Pink Posh New Release Blog Hop - Animal Signs




Hi and welcome to my blog!  I imagine you are hopping along through the list of designers participating in the hop that celebrates the new Pretty Pink Posh release.  My card uses the new Animal Signs stamp set.

Before I go any further it's important to point out that there are 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs with two winners each day of this blog hop.  Winners will be randomly picked but be sure to leave your comments on each blog post by 11.59pm PST on 5/8/19 at to be eligible to win.  Winners will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh blog.   Good luck everybody!



My card also uses the new Lattice Background Die, although I used it as a stencil.  I made a die cut then ink blended through that onto white cardstock with Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick.  This panel was adhered to the card base.  I used one of the dies from the Stitched Border 1 set to make the zig zag edge on the pink cardstock.  I backed that with dimensional foam tape and applied it.



On Strathmore Bristol Smooth I stamped my animal images using Ranger Archival Ink in Potting Soil.  I watercolour painted the images using Kuretake Zigs in Mustard, Mid Gray, Blue Gray, Light Pink, Light Carmine and Warm Gray (2).  Points were highlighted with a white gel pen and they were die cut.

I used Versamark Ink and stamped the sentiments and heat embossed in gold.  They were backed with more of the foam tape and adhered.



The final touch was to adhere a scattering of gold flat cup sequins to tone with the gold sentiments and because I love pink and gold together!

Many many thanks for stopping by today, please click on the next person on the list below to be taken to the next inspiring designer.
