Pink Stamper Challenge #1

Hi Everyone,

Robyn aka My Pink Stamper is having a number of challenges throughout the day today as well as tomorrow. The first challenge she has given everyone is to use your favourite colour and black to create something.

I chose to do a card using Stampin Up's Melon Mambo with Black. I love this hot pink colour with black. The black really makes everything pop.

For this card I used my SU medallion stamp and inked it up with Pink Pirouette, then I used my SU markers to colour around the outside with Rose Red Ink (very close to Melon Mambo ink and works as a good substitute). Once that was done then I took a makeup sponge and dabbed all over the stamp to soften the lines.

To finish everything off I added some Cotton Candy Stickles, ribbon, and a rhinestone brad for a little extra bling.

If you want to get your creative juices flowing then head on over to My Pink Stamper and try out one of her challenges.

Paper- SU Melon Mambo, Black, and Whisper White Cardstock
Ink- SU Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, and Archival Black Ink
Stamps- SU Medallion, Heidi Grace Stamp (sorry can't remember the name)
Accessories- Pop Dots, SU rhinestone brad, paper piercer, mat pack, Cotton Candy Stickles, Melon Mambo Polka Dot ribbon.

Happy Crafting everyone,

  5. Savahanna, you won't be dissapointed. The medallion stamp is so versatile, elegant, and makes a fast easy card. I love that I can use it for birthdays, valentines, christmas, sympathy, pretty much any occasion I can think of. Have fun playing with your new stamp.
