And it was inspired by this dress:
I didn't go as hot pink as the dress, I guess I wasn't in a hot pink kind of mood. I did try a fun trick, though, that I've seen done a few times, and I think I learned first from the super sweet Anita Recksiedler when she did this fabby Hero Hostess intro card. See the flowers? They are from the Hero Arts set Big & Small Flowers. The stamped a flower from it first the "correct" way, and then again with the clear stamp turned upside down on the acrylic block! That way you can get a solid stamp in roughly the same shape! Isn't that a super cool trick???
After I stamped the flowers, I spritzed the entire panel with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist, so it has a really pretty shimmer to it that doesn't show up in the photos.
Part of the reason I didn't hit the really hot pink was because I also wanted to play along with this week's colourQ challenge #71. As I may have mentioned in another post, I adore pink and kraft. hee hee
