Welcome to another challenge everyone with Kraftin Kimmie Stamps! This challenge is seriously a challenge but yet so easy! How is that possible?! My card is one layer – sort of lol. I did it again!! I went into this creating one layer. My card base to work on I purposely cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ but then…. it happened. My brain started working… I’ll explain below.
So like I said, I started with a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Neenah white cardstock. I totally had some colors in mind with these fabulous flamingos. I stamped my flamingos onto the cardstock, created some masks with masking paper and then taped off a square on my card using Thermoweb Purple tape. I only wanted parts of the flamingos in the colors.
With my masks and purple tape in place I applied Mermaid Lagoon, Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide. Then splattered with water. When I removed all my masking I absolutely loved how these white flamingos looked with the distress ink background so I decided to leave it this way. Totally not what I had planned but was rolling with it.
As I was thinking about the sentiment I looked at my card and thought “oh this needs just a small touch of colored cardstock” and with that thought trimmed down my one layer card to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and added a piece of blue cardstock. Then matted this to an A2 size cardbase. I swear I just can’t keep my head into the challenge once I get creating. I need to start putting a note on my desk when creating haha!
Anywho, I stamped the sentiment at the bottom which is also from the Fancy Flamingos set. Could I stop there? No of course not! So I added some glossy dots. I try to stick to the challenge I really do!
