Allsorts Challenge Week 35 - Brown and Pink

Really had to think about this one, as brown and pink is not one of my favourite colour combinations. A bit too sickly for my taste. So I opted for scenic rather than soppy, hoping it might tone down the sweetness a bit.



I managed to use up a bit of old stash - the Stampbord, which I bought a few years ago and never did much with. I don't know why, it's brilliant for stamping on. I've got 64 small squares put away somewhere to make a chess board - if I ever get round to it!

Anyway, the background on the Stampbord is done with alcohol inks, and then overstamped with Versamagic. The border is a Martha Stewart punch, and the greeting by Craftwork Cards, mounted on a Nestabilities scallop circle. Stamps by Stampscapes (lake scene, heron, small rushes and birds on brown background), Clarity Stamp (trees on brown background), Art Impressions (flowers bottom left) and Craftwork Cards (rushes top right).

I love this Lynne. I actually like brown and pink but I know what you mean. It does look like strawberry cream centred chocolate which I hate!

However, your card is fabulous and the Stampbord is beautiful. I too love working on Stampbord but how did you get your colours so pale and pretty with the alcohol inks? I have great difficulty in toning them down usually.

I have absolutely no idea how I missed this Lynne, I am so sorry because it's just beautiful.

We have so many entries last week at Allsorts it was hard keeping up with them all.

Better late than never I guess.

Fab card Lynne! I just love the different ideas that you come up with! You make me feel envious that I never have the time to just 'play' anymore!!

Love Kay xx
