The combination of orange and pink seems to be the lasting trend and one I really like. It's challenging but the results are amazing, it's like an instant shot of happiness!
I decided to throw in a bunch of other 'difficult' and kinda Halloween-y colours, so that they suit my other inspiration for today - Tuesday Trigger: Val de Victorian, and I inked up for the first time the stamps from Waltzingmouse Christmas Cottage, the coveted set that I finally have :)
The base of the card is SU! Blushing Bride, which I sponged with darker pink hues to get a subtle 'sky' gradient. Then I stamped the stars in Memento Rose Bud. There's something so magical about this scene and I doubt I'll be able to part with this card :) It sets me in right the mood for an old-fashioned Christmas, with caroling children, jingling bells and chubby Santa cheeks... how I wish for snow! Not much luck with it in Australia :/
Here's the fabby Trigger that inspired me:
