Lovely in Pink for Color Hues #38

 Hello! I am happy to know that APRIL is here and I'm ready to share our Challenge #38 at Color hues! Sheri is our hostess this month, and she's chosen Pink and Green for our springtime hues. 

Of course, I thought florals would be perfect and the new to me stamps called Loveliness were just waiting and ready to go! 

I used watercolor paper and stamped the images with Versafine black ink then heat embossed with clear powder. I like embossing when I watercolor and used the Zig markers because of the the vibrant  shades, especially the pinks!

I added color with the markers and used a damp brush to add shading and movement. 

All my supplies are from Penny Black today, I will list them below. Once I got the dies I've been wanting to put butterflies with pearls on every card! 

My new stamps mean I join in the April challenge at NBUS!

What will inspire your creation with pink and green? Can't wait to see it in our gallery!

Be yourself

          Have delight in your craft 

               Make something beautiful!  

Supplies from Penny Black: Loveliness  stamps #30-906; Soaring dies #15-731; Spring Day #30-805

Cindy, I have a stamp set very similar to this and as soon as I saw your card I went to my studio and got it out in hopes to use them very soon. Thanks for the inspiration! Pretty card! Enjoy your Sunday!

And why not put butterflies with pearls on every card! They certainly worked on this beautiful springtime design, Cindy! Your coloring is wonderful! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell

Pretty flowers and watercoloring! Loveliness is a good name for this set. Butterflies and flowers go beautifully together and the pearls are the perfect something extra!
