Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

Hi Friends! It's blog hop time at PTI!

 
This month the challenge is to use pink! I started with stamping the image on watercolor paper and black ink. I used re-inkers and my water brush and went to town coloring! The pink card stock is PTI  Raspberry shimmer paper . I have to tell you I had so much FUN coloring in these images!! I stamped a bunch of images and colored for a good two hours! I started out with something different in mind, but in the end I liked the simplicity of this card. I flicked some pink ink in the back round, then took my black fine tip marker and just free handed black squiggle lines around the outside to match the doodle theme.


 
 

Thanks for stopping my my blog! Have a wonderful Saturday!! Char
