"Charisma Cardz" Colour Challenge

So I thought I would look around and see what other challenges would be fun to do and I found these guys

Their challenge was to make a card using Pink, Green and Black, so I had a little go and produced this card.
It's using a technique I wanted to try for ages but never got round to it.  The technique is to stamp a 'solid' block of colour using a clear mount block to transfer the colour - well, you have to make the most of what you have in your stash, and as you can see, it produces a mottled effect, which I think looks great.
I stamped Pear Pizzazz ink, (Cat Ref 119784, Pg 81), for the block of colour on to Pink Pirouette cardstock, (Cat ref 116203, Pg 83),  and used StazOn black ink, (Cat Ref 101406, Pg103),  for the flower and sentiment, both of which come from the "Because I Care" stamp set, which is a free Lv1 hostess set. I also added a little Certainly Celery 3mm taffeta ribbon, (Cat No 119255, Pg 96) and stuck the cardstock onto a Pear Pizzazz A6 card blank.

I'm happy with the effect, I think I will have to have a bit more of a play with this technique using the other sizes of clear blocks that I have.

Happy chatting... xx
