CASology 193 - Pink


This week's CASology Cue Card is Pink.



Tomorrow is the International Day of Pink (almost like we planned it, isn't it?), when we celebrate diversity and raise awareness to stop all forms of bullying.

I love that pink has come to be a colour that represents hope, strength and fearlessness. So I decided to make a bold card, using vivid shades of pink and a bold, strong sentiment (Papertrey Be).

I sponged 2 shades of pink distress inks, going over the bottom portion many times to get a very intense shade and quickly fading out to white.

And now it's your turn.  We can't wait to see your 'pretty in pink' CAS creations this week! Be sure to stop by the rest of the DT blogs for more inspiration:

I just love this Ardyth! IT truly is fearless use of such a punchy colour. If it was me I'm sure there would be a little smudge or finger print creeping in somewhere, but no such thing here! Super awesome! Lou x
