Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have had a great day, we have had a stormy afternoon which is perfect crafting weather although the cats were all a bit spooked by the rumbling thunder.
I’m back with another card challenge (I did warn you I’ve been a bit addicted!) and this time it’s the Freshly Made Sketches challenge 339. I’ve also decided to try the 30 day colouring challenge over on instagram organised by @Kathyrac starting today. So this card is killing 2 birds with one stone (don’t worry, no flamingos were harmed in the making of this card!)
I love the sketch this week and had fun playing with different papers etc.
I eventually decided on a flamingo theme and used a mixture of two stamp sets. The sentiment came from a Crafter’s Companion set that was a gift with Crafter’s Inspiration magazine and the rest was a For the Love of Stamps by Hunkydory tropical set.
I stamped the small flamingos and heat embossed them in pink. The other corner I used the hibiscus flowers as a resist and then used distress oxide inks in seedless preserves and picked raspberry with a light spritz of water to give a light spotty effect.
Finally I coloured and fussy cut a flamingo for the top of the card and stamped the sentiment directly onto the card.
I hope you like it and manage some crafty time over the weekend. Are you participating in any card challenges or the 30 day marker challenge?
