' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Favorite Quote

Favorite Quote

I am joining the Impression  Obsession's challenge, "Favorite Quote/ Saying". Now, I don't tend to use quotes on my cards, but I thought this one would always allow me to use pink inappropriately

The background stamp is CAC Branches (CC031) and the quote is Rose Colored Glasses (D8256)
I have been playing with dye inks and glossy card with the resist technique, and tried several inks (metallic pigment inks work well as a resist). Here I have used versamark.

I think I overinked the brayer here as the colors are... let's say vivid...   but decided to go with it anyway as I still love the image. I have kept layers to a minimum because I didn't want to hide the Branches image and used a Martha Stewart Corner punch on one side and rounded the corners on the other side of a rectangle piece of white card.
One more thing... the "sun" in the image is actually the flash reflecting from the glossy card, and I thought it looked great... wish I could replicate the effect with inks but...

Thanks for coming by,
