Challenge #18 - Let's Fly Away... IN PINK

Hi Pink Ladies...

Today the challenge is all about 'FLYING AWAY'...  so, this opens up a whole host of possibilities, doesn't it?  Think of things with wings....   balloons, fairies, birds, butterflies.... in fact anything that can get off the ground and fly!!  Now don't forget, the most important rule in the book here at IN THE PINK is that you use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR!

Gosh, I do sound like I'm harping on.... but lots of entries are coming through with just a slight hint of pink...  now I like to see PINK OVERLOAD as you know...  and as that's what the challenge is all about, I'm here nagging again!!  White is fine to show as it's not a colour.... and of course, skin tones and hair also are OK...  but the main gist of the card/image should be pink..  ok, enough of my soap box!

Check out the inspiration below - and if you'd like more info on the cards shown, click on the link above each card for details:

I'd like to say a great big thank you to Debs for being Guest Designer here on the last two challenges, I think you'll agree with me that she's come up with stunning creations...  and none more so than the fabulous canvas with the birds above..  just simply WOW to this one!

Again, a big thank you to all that enter the challenges....  it's so good to see that the love of this fabulous colour has spread so far and wide...  there are world-wide entrants now!  And also a huge thank you to those that leave a little love, both in the comment box on here, and also on other entrants creations...  that's so good of you!

I hope you now can't wait to get out your pink pens, pencils and ink...  and get creating something that can FLY AWAY!

Big hugs from the Pink Palace..

  9. It is generally accepted in a papercrafting environment that black and white are not considered colours at all. I apologize for misinterpreting the brief for this challenge, and have removed my entries from your challenge.

    1. Hi Jen... So sorry that you've removed your entries... On the first, I could see lots and lots of what appeared to be brown rather than pink.. which is why I mentioned the guidelines...

      I do hope it won't put you off entering.. you have created some stunning pink cards on previous challenges and I'd love to see you here again..
