Ok, so I'm not quite done with pink yet. Remember the gingko stamps I made last week? Well, I thought they could double up as sweet peas when I saw the challenge from Curtain Call:
I used Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks, a bit of water and a bit of splodging and squidging, then added the short stems, which are also stamps I made, and just extended them down and added a few curly fronds. The background numbers stamp is by Tim Holtz and the birthday stamp is Penny Black - I placed it in the bottom-right corner to make it look like a signature on a painting. I sponged a bit of Antique Linen around the edges of the panel for a bit of an aged look.
I'm also entering it into Simon Says Monday Challenge, Anything Goes.
But not Everything Goes. These sweet peas are faring much better than the ones in my garden, which are refusing to grow despite the warm weather we're having. Maybe I'll just stick this card on the fence and pretend.
