This is my entry for the Hope You Can Cling To challenge HYCCT1114 to create a PINK collage (not blue or any other colour but PINK). I put it this way because my first attempt was NOT pink (clearly the stress is getting to me!) Here are the challenge details: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d-t539062.html post #16
The main image layer is a piece of SU Presto Patterns cs that I added a variety of shades of pink Ranger distress inks to. I used the Inkssentials tool & foam to just keep layering the colours. Once I was happy with the colour, I stamped the lily image in Staz On black ink. I then used a foam, make-up applicator to apply aged mahogany ink (over the original layer of ink) to colour the lilies and then bundled sage on the leaves.
I used the SB Magabilities Abstract Mosaic die to cut the image. Inked the edges of white cs and attached to card base. Since I forgot to add adhesive before cutting, I had to add it to each piece that I laid out! (I wish I had inked the edges of each piece but forgot to do that too :-) )
I printed the Japanese Kanji for Hope. Cut it with fiskars scissors and mounted to a small pc of cs and attached with pop dots. This card is 5" square. tfl
