Play Time with Pink & Black

Another go at the Pink & Black Challenge over at the Paper Dragonfly Creative Challenges:
 I follow a very talented artist on You Tube called Zsoka Marko. She is a wonderful artist with an eye for color and design. She has started her own Stamp Company called "A Pocket Full of Happiness" and I follow her on that You Tube as well! I recently received my first order from Zsoka and this lovely set was one of the items I chose: Spread Your Wings Stamp Set:
I couldn't wait to play with it and I thought the Challenge from Paper Dragonfly was perfect - it would limit my color choices. I went through all of my stamps and pulled all the various pinks from, Altenew, Simon Hurley and The Stamp Market and just stamped for hours. My black is always Altenew's Obsidian Black Ink, the darkest, crispest ink I've found.
This is something you can do while watching TV with the family, for you don't need to much thought to go into it. Here are just some of the cards I made with the backgrounds. Mother's Day in February? Well, I make and sell cards for 3 shops so I am always working ahead of the actual holiday.
Wintertime lighting is hard to get even color, but you get the idea!
They stamped beautifully and were very easy to layer.
I love the scripty font of the sentiment that came with the set. It's very easy to read, which is a plus, for some scripty stamp sets, I can't read at all!
Here are some leftovers background to put in my stash and use another day. The Art Deco looking one in the middle is from an Hero Arts My Monthly Hero long sold out. I just went through my stash and added black here and there between the stamping with small stamps.
Thank you, Zsoka, for all the inspiration and your high quality products. I look forward to playing with my other purchases from A Pocket Full of Happiness!

I am also submitting to NBUS as a new never used set:
