Pretty In Pink (by Asha)

Hello again! Here's another card from me featuring one of the gorgeous new singles released in August: Hanging Flowers Single A6 stamp. What can I say? I just love ... absolutely adore this stamp. It stamps beautifully with clean crisp detailed image and a true joy to colour. It's the kind of image that will work well for all occasions.

I decided to keep it simple by stamping the image with VersaFine Vintage Sepia for a softer more natural look. Then I coloured it with Polychromos and did a little off the edge framing. The background was too white, so I knocked it back with shades of grey and matted with the teeniest show of lavender card.

The background is fake bokeh and I used the  Seasonal Elements Stencil and Distress Inks, applied directly onto a deep pink card base. And lastly, I added some twine to wrap up this project.

I've mentioned this before, but these new floral singles truly are versatile. They work so well for all sorts of projects from a simple card above to a more elaborate Art Journal project I posted a few days ago.

As always, I have details of the tools and products used on my blog. Thank you for stopping by and drop in soon for more designs by the team.



  1. Lovely card, like so much the colours and the fake bokeh background!

  2. So beautiful Asha and the flowers are so prettily coloured and that fake bokeh background goes perfectly with it. Love that added bit of twine too. x

  3. This is gorgeous Asha, I have Polychromos but I'm not very good at using them.Seeing what great result you can acheive I will have to get a bit of practice in. The background is perfect to show off those gorgeous flowers.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous Asha, lovely design and colours, Kate x
