One Layer Wednesday, pink and red!!!

OLW is Baaack. Yay, I'm happy! Susan has returned with One Layer Wednesday after her very busy Christmas and move. The challenge this week is for the colours pink and red mmmm not a favourite combination but I've had a bash
The light is a little challenging here, bright sunshine but through the leaded windows I have to get in the right position between panes to maximise the available light hence dark edges here. Roll on the spring:0)
I used
Hero Arts Large blossom I got mine from the Craft Barn.
The sentiment is a very old Inkadinkadoo, reminds me of the 70's style, love and flower power era which of course I know nothing about!!!!!
I painted the flowers with Twinkling H2o's the pink is an interference colour and glistens with gold, love the effect.
The stamp I embossed with Cosmic Shimmer EB Blue Raspberry Aurora, nice.


Thank you all for your wonderful healing wishes for my back it improves every minute but I couldn't possibly hoover or clean it's really rather delightful, LOL Gay xxx

Sorry to hear about your back, but wish mine would go out to get me out of moving boxes of books. Sigh. There are so many of them!!! Take care, get the rest you need, and surely stamping won't hurt it!
