Flirty Flamingo Friend


Welcome to week 17 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations blog hop for 2021. This week's feature colour is Flirty Flamingo which is from the Brights colour group. Flirty Flamingo is a quite bold pink and definitely not a soft colour which I prefer.

This week I took my inspiration from a piece of the DSP from the Sweet Symmetry pack and also decided to ink up the coordinating In Symmetry stamp set for the first time. I have teamed Flirty Flamingo with Pear Pizzazz.

 This time I actually stamped the image on some Basic White cardstock and then embossed the cardstock with the Ornate Floral folder. I have then die cut this piece with one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies. Then I have mounted this on a piece of the Sweet Symmetry DSP. Some people would call this the "b"side of the paper. 

Ive added a few Rhinestones to the flower petals and flower centre. The sentiment is also from the In Symmetry stamp set and I have embossed it with White embossing powder on Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I have then die cut this using a smaller Stitiched So Sweetly die. Finally some ribbon and a bow using the White Glittered Organdy ribbon, from the current mini, which as well as some silver highlights also has some pink as well.

Next in tonight's blog hop is the lovely Tina Gillespie. I look forward to seeing what lovely creation they share with us tonight. Tina has the ability to create lovely monochromatic cards so I am interested to see her use of Flirty Flamingo.

  1. This is so pretty, T! I remember really struggling with this colour last year, for our shares, but this year we are making it look beautiful! I love your choice of background paper, and the gorgeous, crisp, stamping. The embossing, ribbon, and rhinestones, are really lovely touches. Great job, showcasing Flirty Flamingo. :)
