Smile Mini Canvas

Oh goodness I gotta share some awesome tips with you today. I painted the sides of this mini canvas using Adirondack Shell Pink, once dry I found the pink was just a tad bit too pink. So I lightly applied ColorBox Creamy Brown Chalk Ink over the paint and it created the most BEAUTIFUL shade of  pink which just so happened to match the pink in the Pink Paislee Cottage Farms background paper perfectly.

The next tip is if you apply ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink in Rose Coral on top of the Maya Road Mixed Blossom Mini Chipboard pieces then lightly apply Maya Road Pure White Pigment on top you create another gorgeous shade of pink that works BEAUTIFULLY with the Pink Paislee Cottage Farms patterned paper line.

I just love discovering and sharing tips like this.
