Just Magnolia Challenge - Pink, Grey and Optional Black

Well what another combination of colours for this challenge, well Ive used my new Tilda stamps for this one. Ive stamped Tilda then masked her to stamp the plate behind her, then with my copic pens Ive coloured her with shades of pink and grey, not easy but I hope that Ive achieved a reasonable effect.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, and for the first layer Ive used a pink card with the first of my two pink patterned papers, and again Ive resorted to using the Bearly Mind Extreme Cd designs, the first one is a very pretty flower pattern, the second layer is a black card with a black swirl pattern on, and around these two I have wrapped a piece of Lace with a Pink and Grey Star ribbon with a bow created at the bottom, this I have stuck to the back of the first layer.

Ive then stuck my third mount on top of these two, this one is another piece of pink card with my second pink patterned paper, this one has lots of pink bubbles on. Ive then positioned my mounted stamped image, which has had some stone grey ink distressed around the edge of it, onto a piece of black card, and this has been mounted onto the last mount with some foam tape.

The stamped greeting has also been mounted onto a piece of black card and with another piece of foam tape positioned below the stamped image at the bottom on the right. To finish of I stuck some pink pearl brads in two of the corners.

The final embellishment is my rose, this has been created with twenty balloon punched out shapes on a circle of green, these were first moulded and linked in a circle in layers and the centre petals are half of a heart shape which has also been shaped into a petal as well. Ive then punched out some rose leaves, moulded them and marked the veins either side, and poisitioned them in a circle on some silicone glue before sticking my rose on top.
