Life Through Rose Tinted Spectacles

Gingersnap Creations Colour Challenge is “3 Colors U Love”. The three colours I use time and time again are sepia, rose pink and a creamy white. Pink, yes, I am afraid so!! In my defense I am very particular about the shades of pink I use, they have to be blush rose, dusky faded pinks.

It is relaxing to paint sheets of thin card so they are always to hand. I use the prepared sheets for the main backgrounds and also to stamp small paper elements.  To vary the depth of colour I spray walnut ink, raspberry ink  or dry brush Stucco colour paint (my latest discovery!).
