Color Hues - Red and Pink

Dear Ones~

I have some time right now, so I was excited to be able to play along with the Color Hues Color Challenge. This time the colors are RED and PINK. Now let's just get this out of the way right here. I am NOT a fan of this color But that's okay, I love a challenge. 

Here is what I came up with:

I was going through a bunch of stuff and came across this piece of vellum that I had inked up with some alcohol inks. Don't even know the colors, but there is some Guilded Alloy in there, as well as some really shiny pearl effects. Why is it so hard to capture glitz and glimmer in a photo? It's so stinkin' pretty IRL.  There is a heart die in the Stampin' Up Many Hearts die set that has a pierced border, so I thought it would be fun to use some gold thread and stitch around it.


Here is a closer look.

And The Ingredients Are:

Recollections Rose Petal Card Stock

GKD Black Onyx and White Card Stock

GKD Cranberry Tart Card Stock

Stash Vellum

GKD Master Layouts 4 Die

SU Many Hearts Dies 

GKD Seasons of Joy Stamp & Die Set

Gold Thread


So Himself and I have received our second Covid Vaccination, with no real issues. I feel so blessed to have been able to get the shots so soon. We were just in the right place at the right time. I trust you all are staying safe, dear readers, and I hope you will be vaccinated soon if you aren't already. Hopefully there is a light at the end of this very long tunnel. 

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate all your lovely comments, they always make me smile!!

Until next time, here's celebrating your creative muse.

  8. Wow! Talk about kicking it up a notch with the gold stitching! Plus the gorgeous background you created with the flakes of gold throughout! You took a difficult pair of colors and made a wonderful card Judy! Also, I am tickled to read that you and hubby both got your shots with no problems. It is so nice to know someone now that has had both vaccines. Onward and upward from here I hope! Take care and thanks for choosing Color Hues to play along with! HUGS!

  9. I'm so glad to hear that you have both had your second vaccines, Judy! It was a huge relief getting our first and I imagine getting them both is even a greater feeling. I love how you made your background on vellum, something I've never tried, so thank you! Your design is really fiery on the monitor and the rest of the shine and schparkle we can imagine. The stitching takes the design to a whole nother level!! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Love the inky background you found for your card, so rich and vibrant, the perfect background. Glad to hear some good news too re your vaccine, my OH is up for his 1st on Tuesday, I'll have to wait a while longer. TFS at Color Hues. :)
