Dream on sunshine

As part of a daily challenge over at the Facebook Group for Craftymess, today's challenge was to include pink in our work. **faint**. My usual followers know that pink doesn't feature much in my work. It's not a colour I feel very happy using at all, but the word stressed here is "Challenge"!
Quick think as I finish cutting out my new Steam Punk and Gothic stamps. Sunsets have pink! Eureka!!
Out come the DI 's and a piece of white card cut to ATC size. Very inky fingers later, this emerges
A base coat of Tattered Rose DI then went in with shades of blue, lilac, purple, green and orange and some torn paper with a circle for the setting sun as masks.
The stamps - the mushrooms are Lavinia stamps and the bats and the balloon are from De Stempelwinkel. Two different plates, gothic and steampunk.

I am entering this into the challenge over at
