Inspirations Strikes!

Me again! As usual, longer between posts than I would like. This card just goes to show that inspiration can strike anywhere. I seem to be suffering from an illness which has been mentioned by several SU demos – I am starting to see the world in SU cardstock colours! I was walking from work to the bank the other day and a shop sign caught my eye. It was for a local beauty salon - not the sort of place I would usually give a second glance (lol!). However the sign was very pretty and feminine, and my brain just went "Going Grey and Pretty in Pink. Scary huh? I have been wanting to try a technique called "Retiform" (you can find Beate's great tutorial by clicking here) and I thought that it would give me the lovely soft look that I wanted for this card. I have used the Spring Solitude level 2 Hostess set and the colours Going Grey and Pretty in Pink in both inks and cardstock. I stamped the bird and the heart in Regal Rose to make them a little stronger. The central image is matted on Basic Grey and Regal Rose and popped up on dimensional, and the card is finished with some Pretty in Pink brads. Hope you like it! Very different for me. Thanks for stopping by.
