You're amazing

I'd like to enter this card into the Less is more challenge: one layer and sentiment
and the Inkspirational challenge #104 : pink and grey

I started with the background stamp from Marianne design (eline's brush). I used Distress inks Spun Sugar and picked raspberry, I wetted the ink with perfect pearl mist and stamped it to get a watercoloured effect with some shimmer.
Then I stamped the sentiment from My Favorite things (bold statements) with
Versamark and I used Papermania superfine silver embossing powder.

I thought silver is a kind of grey...I'm sorry if not...

I started with the other card , as I don't have a grey stamping ink I switched the colours round, Hickory Smoke with water for the background and Gumball pink (Ranger) for the sentiment, embossed with pink glitter embossing powder from WOW!.(magenta twinkle embossing glitter)

I thought the grey took all the attention instead of the sentmiment as per request for the Less is More Challenge.

  3. Ooooh, Maaike, these colours are so gorgeous together! What a lovely effect. That silver embossing powder is rather fabulous - another thing to go on my ever increasing wishlist! Great cards!

  4. Pretty cards, love the pink and grey--great combination. Thanks for sharing at Less is More!

  5. Your cards are gorgeous!! I love that they are very simple but that they pack such a punch! Gorgeous!!

  6. Both very cool cards but my personal preference is for the pink background


  7. 2 clever and bold striking cards. Equally fun and oozing class but the pink BG shouts at me more so that would have to be my favourite today. thanks for playing along at Less is More this week. Sarah

  8. the pink bg is my favourite too

  9. Two terrific cards Maaike, the backgrounds are super against those bold sentiments!
