US... together

oh boy, this one... I got a wild hair to try something different.  for the background, I mixed light pink Making Memories paint with Tim Holtz Alcohol ink which turned into kinda old bubblegum texture goop, I spread the goop out. I smeared CloseToMyHeart Pearl Paint onto the stamp and pressed it into the bubblegum goop, rinsed it off the stamp, inked up with red ink & stamped again to give it a little color.  The image is really funky & full of texture.

I combined several challenges for this one, something I rarely do:
Hiding in My Craft Room - Pink, Red & White
Stampendous - Add Some Texture
The Sampler Kit Club - Photo Inspiration

All Stamp - CloseToMyHeart Soul Mate

Red Ink - CloseToMyHeart Cranberry
