Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.
Week 20 – Flirty Flamingo
Today I really wanted a dramatic look, so I started with a Basic Black card base. I took an acrylic block, and added some White Craft ink refill. Using the Water Painter brush I squeezed some water onto the ink and flicked it onto the card base.
I took a piece of the Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper and applied inks using Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo. Once I had a lovely mix of colour, I used the Water Painter again with just Melon Mambo ink and flicked it over the watercolouring. Place this aside to dry.
The Brilliant Wings dies were used to cut out the butterflies, which were adhered to the card using Multipurpose Glue just along the body so the wings could sit up.
The sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set is stamped in Versamark ink onto black card. I added Silver Emboss Powder and heat set it. Cut it out with the coordinating Sending dies. I tied a piece of the Silver Simply Elegant Trim in a big bow and placed it on the centre of the largest butterfly, then added the sentiment over the top on Black Mini Dimensionals.
To finish off, I coloured some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the Dark Flirty Flamingo Blends Marker. Some Black and White Pearlized Enamel Effects were also added in groups of three for extra interest.
On the inside a Flirty Flamingo layer with a Basic White layer were added with another water coloured butterfly.
