Pretty in Pink

Happy Thursday! Hope your week is going well….the weekend is not far away now! For my card today, I took a break from my Copic Markers and used my Distress Inkpads. I have to start using them more because it took me awhile to get this one colored up!

The Just Magnolia Challenge this week is to use acetate on your card so I thought I would give it a try. I am also going to submit it to the  Creative Crew challenge which is Cute & Girly.

I stamped the center of the acetate with the Medallion Stamp by SU! using Stazon White ink. I was happy that it dried well and did not smear. Directly behind this, I adhered a paper doily that I stamped with a sentiment.

For some reason, the pink on my colored image and the pink on my DP look very different but IRL they are a much better match! Really!
