Gone a bit mad with Pink!

Happy Sunday to everyone, hope you have all got a lovely day ahead of you. I have used one of my gelli plate backgrounds I made recently, this was meant to have been a blog challenge entry but I never made it in time, the challenge included using black and pink and I think I have just gone a bit too mad with the pink! lol. I am not really that happy with it and have tried to make my Stampotique mermaid characters stand out more from the background by first outlining with posca white pen and a little charcoal pencil to add a bit of depth, not sure it has worked though?

I have also used some Dylusions stamps,stamped onto dictionary paper and coloured, yes you've guessed it, pink! The sentiment is from Tim Holtz and have replaced a couple of the stamped words with dymo tape.

Today is a big day for me, huge gulp!!!, it's the day I try to give up smoking!!!!! For those of you that have achieved this you have my full admiration! I am hoping that I become one of you. I have at last come to the conclusion that it is just a waste of money especially when there is much better things to spend your money on.............

Hope you all have a lovely day
thanks for stopping by and an even bigger thanks for leaving your comments.
