I'm back with another project as June Guest Designer for the Color Throwdown Challenge. This week's challenge colors are turquoise, hot pink, gray and white.
I first cut the background piece with my Silhouette using the Funky Chevrons file. The flamingo body and wing from the Reverse Confetti Fabulous Flamingo set was stamped with Rose Bud ink and then cut out with the matching Fabulous Flamingo dies. The eye/beak and the legs were stamped with black ink and the legs were fussy cut out. The sentiment was stamped onto a circle cut with a die from the Circles 'n Scallops set. The flowers from the Petals 'n Posies set were stamped with the same Rose Bud ink and then cut out with the matching Petals 'n Posies dies as was the stems cut from cardstock. After attaching the various pieces to the card base using foam tape, I added a scattering of enamel dots. I am double dipping on challenges this week by using the current Sketch For You to Try (#25) for the layout.
Products: Reverse Confetti stamps and dies, PTI, Stampin' Up, MFT and DCWV cs, My Mind's Eye enamel dots, Memento and Simon Says inks
