Feeling in the PINK!

"Pinch,Punch it's the first of the Month" Well this week has absolutely flown by. Why when you are off work do the days go so quickly, yet at other times they simply drag on by? Sadly I haven't done half of the things that I wanted to but at least what I did manage to do wasn't work, and that can't be a bad thing. One of the things that I have managed to do is my design team piece for this weeks challenge at Crafts4eternity our challenge this week is ROMANCE and there is a colour theme to follow (which is posted at the end of this post)
So here is my DT piece

I have this week decided to make a 5" x 7" canvas using some wonderful Stampotique stamps. I have also received my order of Tim Holtz Distress paints I had to have every colour and I have to say I am not disappointed but I do have to play with them some more but I love the fact that they, like the other distress products, react with water.

Here you can see that the stamp goes around the edges, everything was first stamped onto tissue
paper that stuck to the canvas with Claudine Hellmuth matt multi medium, the sentiment from Dylusions was added the same way.

Here are the majority of items that I have used to make this canvas. You will see I have already made a right mess of my distress paints!

You will have probably guessed by now that our ROMANCE challenge is PINK, here is the colour swatch so come and join in at Crafts4eternity this week and lets all share a bit of romance.

I am also entering this piece into the following challenges:-
Simon says stamps challenge theme is "Anything Goes"
Crafty creations challenges theme "Anything but a card"
Try it on a Tuesday theme "Get ready for Valentines day" (use at least one heart)
Fashionable Stamping Challenge theme "Show some love"
stampotique designers challenge theme "what makes you happy" and for me it is getting all painty and messy and you should have seen the state of the place after making this!!!

thanks for looking
