Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Flirty Flamingo!!!

I have seen lots of people using the Buffalo Check stamp and adding some lines to look like Plaid and I had to give it a go. How good does it look?!!! Just reminds me of a check shirt and it’s perfect with these trees!

By using the Stamparatus to ink the stamps, if you don’t get a good coverage the first time or you want a darker colour, you can re-ink and stamp again as many times as required. I did this multiple times with the Buffalo Check stamp and twice with the sentiment. Once I got the right colour with the Buffalo Check, I used a ruler and the Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker to rule some lines to look more like Plaid. Using both the thick end down the centre of each white strip of the check and then the thin end of the marker across the check pattern. Can you see that?

The trees are inked and stamped a couple of times before re-inking and stamping again to get that depth of a forest.

The iridescent sequins are the perfect colour tones to coordinate with my colour palette. I used the Take Your Pick Tool to add them to my card. It is such a cool new tool and saves so much time! I also added some Wink of Stella to the trees for extra glisten!

The copper trim added some darker interest between the image and the plaid and the bow helps to soften it and add a feminine touch.
