Colour Combo February Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Colour Combo February Blog Hop as we share creative projects using Flirty Flamingo, Pacific Point and Soft Sea Foam. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their ideas to help inspire you. 
For my card design, I chose to use the Sale-a-bration stamp set, A Touch Of Ink, which is a Level 2 Reward that you can earn Free with a qualifying order. I just love the images in this stamp set and it has beautiful sentiments that make it perfect for creating wonderful cards. It's also a great stamp set for coloring and I used both the Stampin' Blends Markers and Classic ink with a Blender Pen to color the images.

This card used the outline images for the flowers, leaves and the butterfly to create the card design. I stamped the background of the Soft Sea Foam cardstock with the leaves image using Soft Sea Foam Classic ink for a tone on tone look. For the square, I stamped the flowers and leaves with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends Markers and then stamped the small dots image with Soft Sea Foam Classic ink to create a soft background. I layered the Basic White square onto the scalloped Pacific Point square to create a small border. For the butterfly image, I stamped it onto Basic White cardstock with Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Pacific Point Classic ink and Flirty Flamingo Classic ink with a Blender Pen. I chose this method of coloring as there is no Pacific Point Stampin' Blends Markers and I wanted to try and create the same intensity of color by layering the ink with the Blender Pen. For the sentiment, I stamped the image with Pacific Point Classic ink onto a Basic White label die cut with one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I added two small Basic Pearls that I colored with the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends Marker, for a touch of bling. Using the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, I colored over the flowers, leaves and the butterfly image to add a soft shimmer. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to add the sentiment label and the butterfly to the card front, with the butterfly's legs overlapping on top of the sentiment label.
