Pink and Chocolate mmmmmm

Love those two colors together! I've been itching to use the ice-skating couple from the Winter Post Stamp set in the mini...LOVE THIS STAMP SET!! Do you have it yet? Well you should! Anywho, I have a baggie of Felt Flurries from the mini that's been collecting dust. I thought it might be odd combining the two, but I think it works! Also, I wanted to participate in a couple challenges. :) The first being the color challenge from Splitcoast...using the colors Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, and Kiwi Kiss. The second challenge (and one I've never played in) is Julee's Mojo Madness Sketch.

Unfortunately, there are no pink snowflakes in the Felt Flurries ensemble....NO PROBLEM!! After playing around with them for a bit, I found a small flat bowl, put in a little water and then added a few drops of Pink Pirouette re-inker. I then dunked my white felt flurry into the pink pink tinged water. Oh yes...I have my pink snowflake now!


After a little bit of drying, I touched it up with more pink color using my aquapainter. I also sponged, with a dauber, a bit of chocolate chip ink all over...to kind of muck things up. :) So here is the card I made with it!


I am loving those little crystals...can ya tell?! I put them on the snowflake as well as on the skaters image. You can't really tell, but I also 'mucked' up the pink ribbon with the dauber and Chocolate Chip ink. I just think all this pink looks so luscious! I decided to add to the card by embellishing an ornament with the same color scheme. Here's a picture of the two together.



I used my Big Shot and one of the little Snowflakes dies and got a snowflake. Added more crystals OF COURSE and put it in the bulb. I then poured in some of the white glitter from Chunky Essentials for more sparkle. The "merry and bright" sentiment is a chocolate rub-on from the Seasonal Saying rub-ons. Too bad these ornaments aren't very photogenic. :\ Looks neato in person!

Thanks for hanging out with me. I also want to THANK YOU sooo much for all the very kind comments. I'm so glad to hear that you liked my little mini-tutorial...it just gives me warm fuzzies. :)

What a great blog! I just found you via SCS and you have some great cards on here! What great inspiration! I may have to pull out my Crystal Effects and play with it. I haven't really known what to do with it and I've had it for as long as I've been a demo- 3+ years! Crazy I know!

Aahh! Can I just tell you how beautiful this card is??? I don't have this set but now I want it! And thanks for the idea of how to color the snowflakes by adding a little water...I tried with baha breeze (I needed more baha breeze snowflakes than I had) and it was way too dark...water would have helped. Great ideas here!
