Spanish Olive and Pink Variations

This time the Gingersnap Creations Color Challenge is about using just two colours in your project whereby these colours can be used in any variation you can think of .... my choice fell on Spanish Olive and various shades of Pink
I took some slightly textured white card and embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder - after inking the folder with VersaMagic Spanish Olive. The inking was done unevenly which gives a bit of a distressed effect on the card. I coloured the raised areas - little flowers - with Copics in various Pinks.
For the stamped images I inked some white card with Distress ink 'Spun Sugar' which gave a very subtle pinkish background. All images are from the Relish Reading Plate from Rogue Redhead Design. I stamped the sentiment and cut it with a Nestabilities die. The wonderfully sweet children were stamped twice - once in Spanish Olive and once in Pink Petunia - and clear embossed. I then cut the images and positioned them on the card.
For more wonderful inspiration do hop over to the Gingersnap blog and join in the play! Petra.
