Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 13 April 2018

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "USE YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR".

This week the Design Team were challenged to the topic "Monochrome".

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamps image called "Spring Nocturne" (this can be found in a set along with "Spring Night", "Fantasy Easter Ocean" and "Spring Twilight").  After a lot of debate with myself I decided to go with a pink monochrome theme.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and chalked around the background.

The backing papers are from a Papermania Spots and Stripes - Pastels paper collection.

I have finished the card off with raffia style ribbon, die-cut flowers, bird cage and birds, stamped sentiment and some pearls.

Promarkers used: 

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Dress - Salmon Pink and Antique Pink
Hair - Dusky Rose, Pastel Pink and Coral
Bird - Blush and Cocktail Pink
Flowers - Fuchsia Pink, Cerise, Pink Carnation and Antique Pink.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
