I started out with something completely different in mind & when I couldn't get my mind onto paper, I sort of winged this one, but am more than happy with the end result. As I love Pink & Black, I decided to create something a little softer with a lighter pink, but still teaming it with Black. I also kept the card to a minimum as I wanted the technique to be the focal point.

Non-SU - Wet Ones
After I had applied my technique to my piece of Glossy Cardstock using Pretty in Pink Re-Inker & a Wet Ones, I stamped my image in the bottom LH corner of the cardstock with Black Staz-On. I was going to colour it using the same Re-Inker, but thought I would leave it how it is & keep it very simple. I then run the piece through the Bigshot using Embossing Folder - Prefect Polka Dots.
I made a ink pad from the same Wet Ones I had previously used, using Pretty in Pink Re-Inker, inked my greeting & stamped direct onto a scrap piece of Glossy Cardstock. This was punched out with the Word Window Punch & adhered to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock which had been punched with the Modern Label Punch. I then punched a small hole in each end of the Basic Black Label with the 1/16" Handheld Punch, threaded a piece of Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon through, tucked the ends under & adhered to the piece of Basic Black Cardstock with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
The whole piece was then adhered to the Base Card - Whisper White with Snail Adhesive. I popped a Basic Pearl to the middle of the flower to finish the card.
I would really like to know what you think? Is it too plain????
