TAKE THREE CHALLENGES AT LESS IS MORE!

Hi lovely blogging friends - hope you are enjoying your weekend?
This week the Challenge is A Recipe at Less is More - Chrissie and Mandi would like you to CHOOSE 3 CHALLENGES FROM THE PREVIOUS 29, and combine them on your card.  
I have chosen "Pink Black and White", "3 Squares" and "Use Ink".
Do pop over for all the details and fab. inspiration from the Delicious Divas - Mandi and Chrissie.
***********

 My card Recipe:-
The three squares are from a set by Crafty Individuals, stamped in Onyx Black Versafine.
 For the pink inking technique I have used a brayer with Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar Distress Inks applied between two roughly torn masks.
After applying the Worn Lipstick I moved the masks slightly, then brayered the lighter shade of Spun Sugar to give a lighter edging.
The sentiment is from my stamp stash, found in the darkest, deepest corner of my craft room. Goodness knows where it came from!
The white element is my SU Whisper White cardstock.
************
Have a happy week - love to all, and a very warm welcome to my newest Followers  ~ Thelma, Sally, Lisa, Celeste and Katina.
