Yay; we finally got some sun here in SW England! I was starting to fear there would be no Summer this year; the weather has been so grey and depressing the last 6 weeks. Anywho, this allowed me to take pics outside of my DT card for Truly Scrumptious, where this fortnightly challenge theme is “Pretty in Pink”.
I finally got a chance to play with my new distress ink, “Victorian Velvet”. Love this vintage pink! Couldn’t stay away from my favorite, “Vintage Photo” though… This is also the first time I’ve used “Whimsy” by Saturated Canary. I wanted the image to really pop, so I used quite strong pinks for her dress and more subtle pinks for the embellishments and papers.
