STAMPTACULAR # 111 Pink-a-licious

Our lovely "boss" Priscilla at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge really did challenge me this week with her "Pink-a-licious" theme.  Of course I like pink and have often made cards with pink on them but this week we want to see a stamped image on a project that is entirely pink and that was harder than I thought it would be.
This week we are sponsored by The Stamping Boutique who have your choice of FOUR fabulous digis up for grabs.
I decided to make some little tags instead of a card and I used the stamping boutique image from - yup, you guessed it - The Stamping Boutique. OK so I snuck in a little white, some grey at the windows and my flower centres and the lamp part of the lamp post are yellow, and I used a tiny bit of white and pink paper but you have to admit - it is pretty darn pink!
My photo shows the front view of one tag and the back view of another one.
I coloured my image (which I had to crop slightly to fit the tag) with virtually every one of my pink Copic markers.  The tag itself is cut using best matey Julie's new dies.  Definitely something for my own wish list I think. (PS - Julie tells me the tag die is made by Go Kreate and they are currently in stock at The Craft Barn in the UK)  The great thing about tags is that they require very little paper and I'm afraid I have no idea what papers I used because they all came from my scrap draw.  A few punched flowers and a bit of ribbon and I figure these pink-a-licious little items will be perfect for sending crafty stash to a couple of lovely blog buddies.

Please drop by my teamies and share some love with them and do come and play with us this week.  We would love to see just how pink you can be!

It is surprising just how much you can fit on a small tag (the one you have used here is a great shape .. .. not surprised it has been added to your shopping list).
