CC188 Life a Journey

Life- journey_SaK

Today's color challenge is pink/black/white.  The purple hue on the fleur de

leis glossy paper is actually classic black ink, but I think it can tend to take on a purple tone.  I inked the

fleur de leis in pink pirouette ink and then rock n rolled it in black before stamping on glossy CS.  It was

cut out and matted on black.  The base under it is CS vellum that was run through the Wizard using

the Textile Embossing folder.  I took the pink pirouette pad and ran it over the embossed image. 

The corners are by spare parts, ribbon unknown.  The fleur de lis brads are also spare parts.  The

Fleur de leis stamp and the background are from new images released by Innovative Stamp Creations

called Mini Book Series: Photo Negative

The background was stamped & embossed in  TH distress black soot EP on pink pirouette paper.
