Pink and Turquoise creation for Simon Says Anything Goes!


I pushed my boundaries with this creation! Over at Simon Says Stamp and show it is anything goes and boy did I have fun with this one!

I just love the soft creations over at Tracey's blog Running with Scissors but it is SO VERY out of my comfort zone to work with pastel colours and pinks. So I set out on a mission today to push every limit I have with flowers and the like!


I was inspired by Tracey's Journal page that she covered with book pages and painted and inked on top of. So I decided to try the same on an old picture block I had. Of course my latest Tim Flourish stamp set got used too, in fact it was my starting point and I worked the pages round them. The rest is a case of trial and error, the cupcakes have been various colours on route to brown and you could almost do an archaeological dig through all the layers!
