A little too pink, even for me!

I have to try this technique again, but in a different colour. I came across the original (shown here - isn't it lovely?) a few weeks ago, and finally got around to making my own interpretation of it recently.

I have stamped the big swirl from Baroque Motifs randomly on a piece of Regal Rose cardstock with Regal Rose ink. Then using the floral stamps, I added contrast using Whisper White Craft ink. Sponging the edges of the layer in Whisper White finished it off nicely, giving the main piece a little contrast from the base card, also Regal Rose.

And because it looked a little bare, I added the strip of punched Whisper White cardstock down the side; I do wish, however, that I'd thought of that before I stuck the card together ... had to do a little encouraging to get it to stay LOL.

(PS I have no idea what is going on with my camera ... the card is not an odd bowed shape at all, the edges are perfectly straight, and yet this picture shows it all skewed. Must've had gthe camera on the wrong setting (again) - I hate my new camera ... *sigh* ... should've bought another Canon instead).

This is a great stamp set to use for this technique! I love the flourishes! And ... I don't think it is too pink at all! :D Perhaps you could try using white as the main card ... and put the pink image piece on top??? This would make it a little less monochrome??? But ... I think it is just perfect the way it is! Thanks for linking back to my blog. It is always so exciting to realise that someone has been inspired by something from my blog!!! I always get a thrill from that! Stampin' Hugs, Andrea

Thanks Andrea ... I really do like pink, but this came out even more so than I'd intended LOL. Will take your suggestions on board and have another go - thank you for the inspiration!
