Hello and welcome to Week 16 with the Art With Heart Colour Creations Weekly Showcase. Which the lovely Catherine Proctor is running our weekly blog and with a selection of other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from the Art With Heart Team.
This week we are featuring Flirty Flamingo in our projects. Flirty Flamingo is part of the Brights Collection and comes in a range of Stampin' Up! products such as the Classic Stampin' Pad, Cardstock, DSP and more.
It's certainly starting to feel like Spring is in the air, the days are getting warmer, the flowers are blooming and the birds are twittering. Using Flirty Flamingo is such a bright and happy colour so that's why today's project is using the Prized Peony Bundle.
I've used the embossed resist technique with water colouring. The Peony image is stamped in Versamark Ink onto White Shimmery Cardstock, sprinkle White Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Using one of the fine tip Water Painters I started off with Mango Melody Ink for the center of the Peony followed by Flirty Flamingo and also a little of Melon Mambo to make some of the petals pop. The fun part is that you can go over the white lines when using this technique. It really shows off the Peonies.
The leaves are in Old Olive Ink, I also followed this colour through out the card with the sentiment which is from Fancy Phrases and sponged Ink with the Sponge Dauber for the background on Whisper White Cardstock.
Flirty Flamingo can be a very bright colour but also you can tone it down as well. I've created my own DSP using the same Peony stamp, inked up in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamped off twice before stamping around the edges of the Whisper White Cardstock. It's so pretty in this colour and I didn't want to cover it up. I might just have to have a play with this colour again and create another card.
I've layered the panels onto one another, adhere them to Flirty Flamingo Cardstock for the card base and I've added a strip of White Faux Linen Ribbon to my project.
Thank you for visiting my blog with the Colour Creations Weekly Showcase and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's projects.
