Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #122 - Libby's Feminine Anything Goes Challenge

http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/
This week Libby is hosting a Feminine Anything Goes Challenge.
If colours can be said to have gender, then pink is the ultimate feminine colour. Two of the brand new In Colors for 2017-2019 fall into the pink tones - for me anyway: Powder Pink and Berry Burst. I combined these two colours with a really easy watercolour wash background done as a resist technique. I CASEd a card done by a German Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Her blog is in German and doesn't have a translate button and I can't figure out what her name is. The name of the blog is Stempelzeit - I think.

I loved the colours she used, but decided to try doing it in Powder Pink and Berry Burst.
The stamp set is Daisy Delight. I stamped randomly with Versa Mark ink on the Whisper White cardstock and embossed with clear embossing powder. Using an Aquapainter, I diluted Powder Pink ink in the lid of my ink pad and did a loose wash across the cardstock. Then repeated with the Berry Burst.

I used some of the Copper Ribbon and Linen Thread to tone down the pink tones somewhat. The little tag is cut with a die from the new Wood Crate Framelits.

And that's it! Now check out what the other Watercooler Artists have done with this challenge and then show us your interpretation.

  1. This is a great card Gail. I like how you featured the two new pink in colours and added the copper ribbon and linen thread to offset the tones. I believe the German Demo's name is Ilonka, however I couldn't find a translate button either. Great card CASE.

    1. Thanks Penny. I want to try this with the colours she used - haven't got around to it yet.

  2. Wow, Gail! You always take the artist's route. Love the heat embossing and the colour washes. I have been playing with the Copper Ribbon, trying to achieve that terrific "bow" you created by cutting it.

    1. Thanks Heidi. It's not really a bow. First I put the straight piece of Copper Ribbon around the CS. Then took a piece I'd cut off and pulled it apart then cut into each end. I used the Linen Thread to tie it to the straight piece.
