Pretty in Pink - Outline's Challenge

Good evening !   I couldn't resist Outline's Challenge this week - "Pretty in Pink" as I could visualize a pretty & pink smooch ink background !   The details for this challenge are on Outline's Blog.  They also show beautiful cards by the Design Team. 

It's hard to see the detail of the 'smoochy' background, but it has a nice sheen !     I used my new Outline stamps:   D96 Swirly Flower Med and D97 Swirly Flower Sm and the cool J988 Izzy Background to create this card.

I used Snickerdoodle & Taffy Smooch ink, blended on smooth white card stock to create the background.   I stamped Izzy with Colour Box, Metal extra Platinum Ink.   The flowers were stamped and embossed with a metallic bronze embossing powder.   I also coloured the flowers with the smooch inks.   To blend smooch inks you need a Colour box stylus with a curved moldable foam tip.    It's easy & fun !    I popped up the flowers, added ribbon and used bisque liquid pearls and diamond stickles for the finishing touches.  

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day !

How beautiful! I imagine even more so in person! I like the embossing, the layering, and the pearls and glitter touches too!
