The Flower Challenge #28 Colour Pink and Grey




I love this challenge, probably one of my favourites as pink and grey look 
so amazing together with flowers.

I have used a digital image from Poppy Power  I just love their flowers they 
are simply stunning. 

I printed to the size I wanted and added the sentiment that came with it. I have coloured with dark pinks for the flowers for this one using the range R81 R83 R85 R89 warm greys for stems and leaves
W-1 W-3 W-5 

A pale pink for the floral bands and some pink sparkle washi tape and gems.

 now it's time to go and check out what the rest of the Design Team have been up to then get yourself crafting in all this winter chill and make a pretty floral card to warm yourselves up.

Before you go check out the wonderful little collage Vivienne put together with my favourite 4 cards from challenges in 2018. I think watercolouring with the Zigs was a winner last year especially on those large flower stamps. It was so hard to decide.


Alright..... now you can go to The Flower Challenge and see what everyones been doing.
Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope to see lots of you in 2019.
Actually I already have a couple of posts ready to go xxx Aileen

Your combination of pink, and grey, are my second favorite - next to yellow and grey! But, if you know me at all, you'll already know that grey + more grey is my favorite of all!
Gorgeous blooms, my friend... every single one your heart touches is fabulous... but I cannot lie... I LOVE big blooms!

The shading on your flowers is so wonderful, Aileen. Quite calm compared to those big beautiful blooms in your 'favorite's collage.

Beautiful sweet peas Aileen. I am always in awe of your colouring skills and your showcased cards just highlight how fantastic they are. (Sadly Santa didn't bring any Zigs for me - dear husband was all set to buy then he checked out the $45 postage charge!!So another thing to save up for!) x
