Inkspirational Challenge 55 - Green and Pink

We have a spring-like colour combo at Inkspirational this time - green and pink. For my DT card, I used an A Day for Daisies image, printed directly onto the patterned paper. Then I paper-pieced her dress with a different pp. The leaves were already on the patterned paper so I highlighted them with pearls and gems and stamped the sentiment.

We'd love you to join us at Inkspirational with your green and pink creation. We have a fabulous Guest Designer, Alycia, so please do come and have a look.

Really pretty take on the challenge and love how you added the gems to the leaves, it does highlight them as my eye was drawn straight to that...after the pink dress x

Marina, your card is absolutely lovely; your little girl reminds me of my niece (she's four), sitting at her desk practicing learning to print. Darling image, pretty dress, and the pearls and gems are such a special touch! WOW!!

I LOVE what you've created here, Marina! What a great idea to add the image directly onto the DP and paper piece and highlight certain details! I will definitely try this technique, thanks for the in(k)spiration!

I love the simplicity of your stamping/paper piecing. I always want to do too much, and you have inspired me to try the more selective colouring/accenting. Great design tfs!
