Simply Soft & Subtle Pink

I love the combination of a dark pink with a light pink. Today I took Rose Red and paired it with the soon to be returning Pink Pirouette. Lovely match! I used Sweet Sunday Sketch 70 for the layout. I inked up my Elegant Bouquet Impression Folder with Pink Pirouette to bring out the embossed flowers. Just a subtle colour change really makes them stand out.

For my flower bundles I actually used Glassine Bags. They are a little thicker than plain tissue paper and I find them easier to work with then. I punched out 8 flowers for each bundle with my 5 point flower punch and then sponged the tips of every flower with Rose Red ink using sponge daubers. Each flower is put together with a Clear Crystal Brad and then I pull up one layer at a time, scrunching as I go. The Glassine Bags give them such a soft touch. These flowers remind of water lilies with just a little touch of pink.

All the edges of cardstock were roughed up using my trusty old scissors. Even my sentiment which is from Elements of Style.
