Shades of any Color at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge we're challenging you to Use Shades of any Color. A dear friend of mine loves the color pink, so I made her a special gift for Valentine's Day.

I made a gift bag using my Silhouette Cameo & decorated it with pink corrugated cardboard and Washi tape. I filled it with a heart-shaped soap, a candy bar from my favorite craft store in Arizona, and a Starbucks gift card.

I made a gift card holder with more of the corrugated cardboard, a coffee-themed paintable from AdornIt, and coffee-scented Washi tape. I colored the paintable with watercolor pencils and Copic markers.
