AWH Team - Colour Creations Showcase Week 16 - Flirty Flamingo

Hello and welcome, everyone.

We are up to Week 16 in our Colour Creations Showcase from the Art With Heart Team. Tonight, Flirty Flamingo has the centre stage spotlight.

This lovely dusty, candy pink is from the Brights Collection of Stampin' Up! colours.
Tonight I have teamed it with gold and brass elements to enhance its pretty pink colour.

The main Whisper White layer was embossed first with the Subtle 3D embossing folder and then cropped with a die from the Ornate Layers die set.

The Flirty Flamingo layer was edge cut with the same die and I rounded the lower left corner with the Detailed Trio punch to echo the round corners of the first layer. I then embossed with the leaf pattern from the Greenery set of two embossing folders.

I stamped the large and medium daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set onto Shimmery White and Flirty Flamingo card stock in Flirty Flamingo ink, and punched out with their coordinating punches. For the beautiful brass foil centre, I used one of the smallest flower dies from the Wreath Builder die set on page 173 of the Annual Catalogue.

The sentiment is also from the Daisy Lane stamp set and I stamped it in Flirty Flamingo onto Whisper White. I used two Stitched Rectangles to crop the word 'friend' and the Brass Foil backing layer.

I love thinking of different ways to use the gorgeous Gold Hoop embellishments. They are easy to attach with glue dots and then they can be easily disguised with other embellishments and die-cuts or punched out images.
To compliment all the lovely gold and brass elements, I added some gold Gilded Gems and gold twine from the Forever Greenery Trim pack.

You can just see a sneaky peak of the inside of the card. I layered a piece of Whisper White onto a slightly larger piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock for the simple writing panel.

Thank you so much for joining us each week to see our colour focus projects hosted by our lovely team member, Catherine Proctor. We hope you are enjoying what you see and are getting lots of inspiration from the Art With Heart team members.
