Welcome back to Wednesday night's little treat! And what a treat it is! What DO you do with a bright strawberry gelati colour?
The Art With Heart Team creative ladies are going to show you tonight with our Colour Creation Showcase of Flirty Flamingo.
Bright pink makes me cringe. However, I happen to know that LOTS of people LIKE bright pink. So, I keep a favourite colour combination up my sleeve that never fails to work - and by keeping the brightest pink to the smallest percentage of colour on the project, you can get away with it!
This week I have used a brand new stamp set which just arrived in the mail on Monday. It is part of a stamp set / dies bundle in the Annual Catalogue, however, I opted to only purchase the stamp set because I couldn't really see myself using the dies - and that means I can get more stamp sets, right?
The stamp set is Prized Peonies. I have stamped the main image with Basic Gray ink on Thick Whisper White card, then rather than cutting the whole peony image out, I have used my trimmer to cut a straight line about 1cm in from the left edge of the image - lifting the trimmer blade over the leaves, then continuing on the same line below the leaves.
Then on the bottom of the image I have done the same, lifting the trimmer blade over the stem, then continuing the cut after the stem. Then I used my Paper Snips to trim around the leaves and stem so they appear to stick out from the white layer of the card, even though it is only one piece.
The image is coloured using the Flirty Flamingo and the Granny Apple Green Blends Duos.
The other large peony stamp in the set is stamped in Flirty Flamingo Ink onto Blushing Bride card stock for the base card.
The gorgeous trellis effect die cut in Basic Gray is from the Fabulous Florals Dies. The final addition to the front of the card is a couple of Champagne Rhinestones touched up with the Dark Flirty Flamingo Blend.
And of course, you must stamp the inside! I have left it without a greeting for now - I am saving space for a happy birthday stamp!
I hope you will pop over to Cathy's blog to see the rest of the Flirty Flamingo creations and learn how our talented team have incorporated this bold colour into their crafting.
If you have time, please leave me a comment and I hope to see you back again next week for Garden Green!
See you then!
