Just my type!

I am not an 'inky' person.
I am a straight down the line,  Memento Tuxedo Black, person.
So it was a suprise to me, when I found myself reaching for an old, pink ink pad. Pink!!! 
I never stamp in colour!!

It's not easy, is it? But, I think I like it :-)

I also discovered a neat little trick with clear, dew drops
If you use a Copic to dot colour on your card, then stick the dew drop on top,
 using a tiny glue dot, the colour shows through beautifully.



(Ignore the black line under the ribbon and the dark grey line along the bottom of my card panel, 
they're just shadows that my camera has picked up)

This is fabulous Caroline. The typewriter looks brilliant stamped in pink. I love the way you have placed the sentiment and the papers are gorgeous.
That's a handy hint with the dew drop, will definitely be trying that one out.

I wouldn't have guessed this is a step out of your comfort zone. I think this card is amazing. Yes, even though you used a pink ink pad for stamping. ;) Hugs! xx
