Welcome to week 16 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!
This week we are showcasing one of the brights: Flirty Flamingo!
For my Flirty Flamingo card I’m using one of the loveliest stamp sets from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue: Wishing You Well. This stamp set can be used for Christmas cards, sympathy cards or even for “just a note” cards you might want to send to somebody for a variety of reasons.
Wishing You Well is a “distinctive” stamp set, which means it adds monochromatic dimension by creating different opacities in a single stamped image. This provides a realistic depth and intensity to the image and gives a lovely watercoloured look…without any of the hard work!
Although Flirty Flamingo is a bright colour, I love the look of it with one of the subtle colours: Pear Pizzaz.
I’ve added some bling to this card by using my Dark Flirty Flamingo Blender Pen to colour in some Clear Rhinestone Jewels.
The sentiment has been stamped and then layered using two punches. The Classic Label punch punched out the Whisper White layer onto which the sentiment was stamped onto, then I also punched out some Pear Pizzaz cardstock using the Pretty Label punch to add some more dimension. The photo below shows how I cut off the top and the bottom of the Pretty Label shape to make a long rounded rectangle shape.
I just love the soft watercolour look this distinctive stamp set gives…with very little work on my behalf!
