I have to admit, I was a little daunted by this color....PINK! It's not a shade I use very often so I was a little flummoxed until I remembered this awesome set I've only used a couple times...Fabulous Flamingo...and my card was born:
I started with the idea of a row of flamingos--all in the same shade to as a way to demonstrate their conformity. THe last flamingo is strutting her stuff all decked out with all three steps of stamps in this set! The base flamingo is Powder Pink, the second layer--the shading--is what else--Flirty Flamingo, of course! The accent lines are obviously stamped in Black Memento ink.
I didn't want to introduce another color--staying true to the "any shade of pink" challenge--so I used a base of Smoky Slate and stamped a few palm fronds in the same color ink to frame the focal point.
The sentiment had to be just right--something that emphasized the individuality of the recipient--I really wanted to use the die-cut YOU from the SAB Amazing You set. Once that was die-cut in black, I went searching through my stash for just the right companion sentiment. I found it in "Just Be" from the retired Crazy For You stamp set--perfect!
I'm not sure when I will have occasion for this card so I left the inside sentiment free but stamped another flamingo framed with palm fronds. This really is such a cool set--love that shading on the flamingo!
