Pink, White & Silver

I've missed some Merry Monday challenges, but was determined to get something made for this week as pink is my favorite color. I also wanted to try Melissa's technique using impression plates & chalk for the PTI MIM challenge. I used Snowflake Flurries and some dots from Harvest Berries. White cardstock was impressed with the Canvas/Linen impression plate & then rubbed with 2 pink chalks.  I used VersaMagic Pink Petunia & Pixie Dust with the dots stamped in Ultimate Metallic Silver.  Then I used a white gel pen in each dot.  The sentiment from Snowflake Flurries is silver embossed on a die cut vellum oval mounted to another die cut vellum oval.  Some pink Rain Dots are the only embellishment.  
The texture really shows in the chalked background areas, but not so much with the stamped images.  May try it again with Rosie Posie & some dye inks like Melissa used. I'm also entering SSS Monday Anything Goes. So glad you took time to stop by.
