I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

A Splash of Pink

I ran across The Play Date Cafe blog the other day while surfing around blogland. Their latest challenge, PDCC71, is to use black and white with a "splash" of color. It caught my fancy, so I decided to see what I could do. After looking through my inventory of stamps, I settled on a Pure Innocence set. Next, I went looking for a sketch. Naturally, the MFT Wednesday sketch #9 seemed appropriate.

I love black and pink together, and with a PI girl, pink definitely works. Here is everything put together:

There is a fair amount of bling in this card, from the pink rhinestone flower in her hair to the centers of the flowers in the pot, and I love how it looks. Missy's dress is paper pieced. The rest of her is colored with Copics. Her sweater is colored with the Blossom Spica pen for sparkle as well.

I debated about piercing around the circle to match the dots in the pink ribbon, but decided that there was enough texture already.

Stamps: Because You're Special by My Favorite Things
Card stock: SU textured black, TE choice snowwhite
Patterned paper: Creative Memories and scraps from an old TE KI kit
Ink: memento tuxedo black, Copics, and Spica pen in Blossom
Other: classic circle Nestie, Die-namics Decorative Doily die, Taylored Expressions pink flower rhinestone and clear rhinestones, Kaiser black dot, TE pink polka dot ribbon, SU oval punch, the Big Shot, and dimensionals
