Pink Color Dare


It's been such a busy week, finally having time to finish some cards and photograph them. I made this pink background using the wax paper resist technique with an embossing folder. After watching a Gina K live I had lots of fun experimenting. My iron was happy to be dusted off!

I lightly blended CTMH Pixie ink. The rest of the stamps and dies are from Altenew, and the floral was colored with Altenew Artist markers.   Pinks + green.  The photo doesn't show the tiny gold splatters, but they shimmer in the light.


  1. I love that background and the flowers on the mesh background are perfect! Great card! Thanks for sharing with us at Colour Dare :)

  2. Your wax resist background has come out really well!

  4. Very pretty background... I haven't done a wax paper background for awhile, like you say "dust off your iron". Great floral and coloring and die dut embellishment for your pretty card. Thanks for sharing with us at Color Dare.

  5. How fun is that mesh behind the flowers. Your background is lovely! Thank you for joining us at Color Dare!
