Flirty Flamingo is our colour for week 17, and what a delightful colour it is, sitting happily in the brights family. I love a bright colour!!! The participants in Colour Creations are all Stampin' Up! demonstrators and members of Art With Heart.
Creating with Quiet Meadow, Nature's Harvest and Flirty Flamingo was such an enjoyable session.
Echinacea, more commonly called cone flower are a lovely pink, so I saw no problem with colouring them with Flirty Flamingo.
This is the simplest of my cards this week, although there is quite a bit of stamping & colouring.
The card is the basic measurement (10cm by 14.5cm) with an 9.5cm by 14cm layer and the white stamped piece another .5cm smaller.
The second card is similar, with some extra embellishment, mostly from the Harvest Meadow Suite. The cork paper is fabulous with a very authentic look and feel, but so easy to cut. Being economical, I cut the centre from this piece and used it on the 3rd card! Brushed metallic adhesive backed dots are with the suite too, all on page 54-56 of the mini catalogue.
For the 3rd card, the flowers have been die cut, and another die from the set was cut using the Be Dazzling SALE-A-Bration paper. It has run out in the US market, I wonder if we'll have enough supplies to last until September 30, when SAB ends.
The Stitched Rectangle dies were used to cut most of the card, and Stitched So Sweetly has the scalloped and stitched rectangles for the Flirty Flamingo piece. So pretty!
