AWH Colour Creations: Flirty Flamingo
September 16, 2020
Wednesday evening is when the Art With Heart team I belong to has their Colour Creations showcase. Each week there's a different colour featured and this week it is Flirty Flamingo.
I'm excited to be joining in the fun. The lovely Catherine is hosting us and there's links at the bottom if you'd like to do a lap and see all the Flirty Flamingo inspiration.
Tips to make this one at home: I've used the Birds and Branches bundle - I just love that floral frame die. This is a cute little square card in whisper white that I cut to fit the feature panel. There's a vellum layer under the Flirty Flamingo piece. I embossed another piece of vellum with the Ornate Floral embossing folder.
I stamped the flowers in Flirty Flamingo ink - some at full strength and some stamped off once for a lighter look.
And for a finishing touch of sparkle some of these blue adhesive backed gems - did you know these were one of the top 3 popular products from our Aug - Dec Mini?
I hope to join in more regularly so keep an eye out here each Wednesday evening for our featured colour of the week.
Now head on over to our lovely Colour Creations host where you'll find the rest of the links for some more Flirty Flamingo creations from my talented team mates. Catherine - Colour Creations host
Take care, Sue

A really sweet card, Sue! The gems are fabulous, but I really love the embossed vellum layer behind the floral window.

Such a sweet and pretty little card, Sue. And POP - I love the gorgeous blue gems with the Flirty Flamingo colour! Love the embossed Vellum - I should use mine more often.

Such a cute card Sue. What a clever idea to use the embossing folder to add texture behind the wreath. A perfect choice. And, yes those blue gems are so sparkly and lovely. I have been popping them on lots of cards.

So lovely to see you joining in - and such a cute card! I am so tempted to get that set just for that floral frame die!

Sue, that embossed vellum looks beautiful behind that circle die with the bird & flowers. I love those blue gems and they add a lovely touch of extra colour.

This is a very sweet card, Sue. I love the Ornate Floral embossing folder, and the Birds & More dies, so how could I not love a gorgeous combination of the two? Nice to have you joining in the colour fun!
