More mixed media May challenge: pink

This is my design project for More mixed media May challenge where the option this month is to use pink. Please click on the link to see the wonderful crafting of the rest of the team. We hope you will join in our challenge - you don't have to use pink, that's optional ... just create a mixed media design.

I altered and decorated a tin that had previously had chocolates in. I used stream and wild plum alcohol inks with dabs of BP7 pink alcohol spectrum noir pen, mixed with alcohol blending solution, dabbing randomly everywhere. For the lid of the tin I just used the pink alcohol with the blending solution. I stamped Stampington antique buttons with memento tuxedo black and decorated with ribbons, felt buttons and crocheted flowers.
