Color Combo Gallore Challenge #157

I'm hooked on challenges.  Stuck.  This week's challenge was delayed due to "Life Happens, Deal with It", but I was checking every couple of hours until it WAS posted.  Ladies, it was worth the wait.  This weeks colors are; Girly Pink, Calming Kraft, Tranquil White and Soft black.... Check out the link and see the reveal and the inspiration board.  This is my take.

I'll start with the back ground paper, it's MME from the Meadow Lark Collection by Carina Gardner.  I love birds and I've been saving this paper.
Top Left: Stamp bird image onto pink paper with VersaMark ink, sprinkle with white embossing powder and set with your favorite embossing gun or pop into your toaster (that's a little joke).  Tag (MME) traced with white opaque Inkssentials pen, and some Tim Holtz tissue tape. Enhanced background paper with my Liquid Pearls.
Top Right:  Take scrap of ledge paper, spritz with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, in Rose Tea, Cherry Blossom and Sand...I went heavy on the Rose Tea & Cherry Blossom.  The paper was soaked thru. While wet, I rolled the edges.  Once dry I distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen.  Stamped an swirl image in Versa Mark, sprinkled with white embossing powder and set.  Stapled in place with... Tim Holtz Mini Stapler.
Bottom Left:  Took a 1 1/2" x 12" strip of pink paper, punched with my Martha Stewart punch (Hint lady, print the name of the punch on IT for these purposes!) Took a 2" x 12" strip of polka dot paper from Meadow Lark line and punched both edges with same punch. Distress with more Antique Linen.  Then using ribbon gathering technique (see previous posts for tutorial) adhere white grosgrain ribbon with adhesive and Tim Holtz stapler.
Bottom Right: Take metal embellishment (mine happens to be..what's that? TIM HOLTZ) and dab with white Stazon pad.  Thread some pink ribbon thru and adhere.  Stamp another bird image, this time on kraft paper, with VersaMark and emboss in white.  Take key hole metal embellishement, this time by Paper Studios, and dab with the white Stazon pad.
On the back ground paper itself.  I used my favorite pink water color pencil and added where I liked.  Then using Making Memories rub on's ( Heidi UC White, this is like ancient don't even bother looking for them!) I spelled out STILL LIFE.  From a page kit, I stole these black/grey clear epoxy stickers and spelled it out again.  Did a little enhancing with a favorite grey/black marker and my pink water color pencil.
My other metal embellishment was a little more work was involved.  I took a piece of Ten Second Studio metal and embossed with a favorite Cuttlebug folder.  I then painted it with Rose Petal Pink by Making Memories (good luck finding this too!).  I did two pieces of metal, the second painted in Shopping Bag by MM.  Once dry, I sanded OFF the paint revealing the metal beneath.  Then came back over with white Stazon ink.  Using my EK Success scalloped border punch, I created two strips of "metal ribbon".
