I like pink!!!

I was just walking out of the supermarket yesterday when I spotted a leaflet with a beautiful Peony on it - I don't know why but it made me think of Paris…come to think of it …it doesn't take much to make me think of Paris!!!
After lunch I set to on a journal page that I had dried off a stencil with..
I rubbed on some silver paint using some small masks (PA Emma Godfrey (PM006)  
I added some crackle paste using a Dina Wakley mask which I smudged over with a touch of Treasure Gold!
The peony was cut from the leaflet and stuck on the corner


I used Lynne Perella's hearts from LPC030 and an Eiffel Tower (that I have had for ages and no idea where from!)to stamp onto tissue paper that I painted before adding using multi medium paste.I also stamped some text and a tiny flower using a Carabelle Studio set by Azoline
The words are by Visible Image Stamps that I stamped onto white and pink tissue and overlaid the pink Memories. 

I would like to enter -
Country View Challenges 'Hearts' challenge

Penny Black and More - Anything Goes
and 

Mixed Media Monthly - Year of choices I have chosen No 36 Put a Stamp On It with my tissue stamped additions and my background text and flowers.

Thanks for looking, Chris

You know I'm not a pink fan, but I could learn to like it after seeing this wonderful journal entry. You always find such joy in making art that revolves around flowers, and this one with the gold tone made it even more special. It's a great tribute to the lovely peony.

Mmmmm... crackled stencilling - and that peony is stunning! I saw some for sale in a florists today and was very tempted, but they'd've suffered on the subway ride home I think.
