A Drink With An Umbrella In It

Hello.  Welcome.  I've been thinking about the Stampoutique challenge, an orange and pink background.  Not really my go to colours but sure to have a wow factor, if I get it right. 

I started with a piece of hot pink card and brayered with PaperArtsy FF Butternut and Rose and then some orange acrylic.  Not so impressed with that.  

Tando Flower Mask and DI Picked Raspberry

I used the script stamp from PaperArtsy LPC003 set and Picked Raspberry.  It was a bit strong so I wiped some away.  It's quite subtle now but I liked it

I stamped a Prima Doll and paper pieced her dress using some MME paper.  Her hair and shoes are coloured with Promarkers.  I added three hot pink enamel dots and added my panel to a matt black card.

    I love the background! I never would have tried to paint on solid colored cardstock and I think you did a terrific job of it.

  7. I'm with you, Gail, about orange and pink (especially in combination) not being my "go to" colors. But, in the end, we both created cards we love! How's that for cool!? Love that stamped image!
