A touch of Pink

Last night I made a card with two challenges in mind....

First I was inspired by the Altenew Inspiration Challenge for May 2017

The waterlily is so pretty in the pinks.

I had made some watercolour paper while taking part in the Altenew Academy Stencil class, one I decided not to use as it was too pink for what I had in mind... but turned out perfect for this.  I stamped the main roses from Beautiful Day set in Ruby Red ink and then the next layer in Coral Berry.  I then took some Prismacolor pencils and added more pinks.  The buds are from Peony Bouquet set, also added to with the pencils.  The leaves are from the Beautiful Day set - some I had sitting in my scrap bowl from a project awhile back.  I added a touch of Bamboo ink stenciling (although my photo looks yellow it's very pretty in real life)   I finished with a sentiment from Beautiful Quotes stamped in Pure Graphite ink.  All the stamps, inks and the stencil are from Altenew.

And I'm adding it to the challenge at Simon Says Stamp....A Hint of Pink.
Plus the Creative With Stamps monthly challenge - Flowers
I have finished all my Altenew Academy homework so will share the last two cards in a day or so.
