Pretty in Pink

So my favorite color is red, but if you add some white...
you get this week's cue card: PINK.
I really wanted to play with various shades of the color 
and I had the perfect little set of birdies to do so!

I totally love these Technique Tuesday birdies and sentiment!
How awesome are Prismacolor pencil colors on kraft cardstock?? Super!
I only used three colors (white, carmine red, and light pink) and some 
lighting concepts from my Copic certification classes from a few weeks ago.

Colored Pencil Tips: Use white for highlights. You can lightly color over an
entire image with it to smooth out the blended areas too :)

A few clear rhinestones and a pink mat and here you go...I know these are not flamingos,
but the long legs kinda took me in that direction. Darn Florida living for so many years :)

Ok, time to see the cutesy cool pink inspirations from the DT.
