Julia Quinn's blog, who's card really is stunning or starting fresh with me, welcome!!
Even though you'll never see a flamingo in any of these colours, I still couldn't help using the the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set. These stamps have been calling to me for a while and I knew this awesome colour challenge would be a perfect.
After creating the whole card front, I realized that my flamingo's looked a bit odd without legs and so had to add them in after. The only problem I had was some of the legs would be stamped over the top of the other flamingo's faces and bodies. Not a good look. So this where masking comes in handy.
I stamped a flamingo body onto some scrap paper and cut around it as close as possible to the outline. I then taped that mask over the top of the flamingo who would have had legs stamped on him. This way, when I stamp on the legs, they stamp on the flamingo mask and when I move it away, it looks like the legs go behind the flamingo!!
So now it's time for you to hop on over and visit Elizabeth Gross's blog. I know her card is beautiful and you will just love it!! And then once you have hopped all the way along, I hope you will visit our Colour Inkspiration Facebook and play along with us there. We do look forward to seeing what you create.
