Pink and Black Explosion

I was trying out my Eloise - Sugar Nellie Stamp and thought perhaps I would go for the Pink and Black combination that has appeared on a number of challenges over the past few weeks.

Well all I can say is that it has come out as an explosion of colour and shape not a nice sight. Normally I go for pretty simply cards - purely because it is taking so long to colour in using the promarkers that i have lost the will to live when it comes to adding flowers, bows and embellishments. Having looked at so many sites and noticed that a large percentage of the cards have lots on them I decided to try. You know I really am a Yorkshire girl and a spade is a shovel kinda gal and I couldn't do this.

I used the

I Love Promarkers Sketch and the theme of Pink and Black from the Creative Inspirations Blog.

The papers were from the Internet and entitled a Hint of Pink.

I stamped a flourish around the edge of the card using Pink Versa Chalk ink and Memento Black.

The image is Eloise from Sugar Nellie coloured using Promarkers.
I have thought of putting it in for the two challenges anyway.
