Monotone Pink

The challenge at Cute Daisy May this weeks calls for a monotone card so I used all pinks except Anya's hair and skin obviously but I will call that using my artistic license lol. I got this lovely image from Lorraine when we done an image swap. I think I got the better deal though, she has a wonderful collection of stamps and well mine is not so wonderful lol. I have used the sketch at Papertake weekly which is of course by the fabulous Dawny P. I enjoyed working with this sketch. It was nice and easy but so much can be done with it too. I just left it sa it was though as I thought it suited my image best like this.
My flowers are a mix of Primas, tiny punched ones from a punch a got in an Artymiss bargain box (in fact I got over 20 different ones) and the largest ones are also from the same bargain box. They were just plain die cut flowers but I put them through my cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder and inked one a darker pink. I never thought I would use these but they are quite pretty when you jazz them up a bit, don't ya think?

Designer papers: Bo Bunny,fancy pants and no idea who makes the large flower print one because I cut off the strip again!
Image: Anya from Lorraine xx
Colouring: Copics
Embelishments: Prima flowers, die cut flowers and punched flowers with a cheapo tiny punch (sorry no name on it) Swirls are All Night Media large swirl punch, gems from stash
Tools: Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.

Hope you are all having a great day.
Hugs Lora xx
