Love Hearts...Inkspirational #75~Rose Colours, TIME OUT #23~Valentine's Day, The Card Concept #27~Love, Simply Create Too #78~Valentine's Day (or Hearts), Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~Anything Goes

Hello all!

Welcome back to Inkspirational Challenges everyone, and a rousing round of applause for all the great entries in our last challenge. Plenty of ombre-awesome in the gallery!

 Today, I'm sharing details about Inkspirational #75~



Guidelines: Use rose shades of red and /or pink. You may also use green leaf colours, black, white or cream and realistic colours for skin, fur and hair. 

Talented Jill is our Guest Designer and I'll wait while you check out her card. Scuh a gorgeous shimmery delight, isn't it! Along with her oh-so-pretty inspiration, please be sure to check out the rest of the DT, whose rose-inspired cards are guaranteed to spark your creativity:  Marina, SandieShaunaNonniYvonnePia and Kim.

My card marks the debut of some new Reverse Confetti products (swooning over these hearts - and they're just a sampling of the full stamp/die set)) and a new TH wood-grain embossing folder. The hearts were sponged/inked with my "vast" selection of three pink/red inks


Once you've checked out the Jill and the DTs cards, please be sure to add your rose-inspired card to the gallery.  One entrant will be invited as a Guest Designer for a future challenge.

My card "pinged" from the pretty image at The Card Concept #27~Love (clean and graphically layered?)


I'm also entering: TIME OUT #23 Valentine's Day with the Optional Twist of Hearts,
Simply Create Too #78~Valentine's Day/Hearts and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~Anything Goes.


Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs...

  35. Love the look you've created here with different sized hearts against a wooden background. I really like the design of the hearts and how you popped them and made them look thicker, like they're made of ceramic or something, that's pretty cool!
