Artistically Asian in Flirty Flamingo

Happy Monday to you! I hope your weekend was refreshing! We've had some serious flooding problems here in our area and the rain seems relentless. My thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been affected, particularly some of my customers! I hope you have been able to keep your homes safe and dry.

I'm still working on Make & Takes for my One Day Craft Crop to Aid Refugees which takes place on Saturday May 27th.

I'm excited about the event and I'm working hard to plan the goody bags, door prizes and the Make & Takes. My next design is based on a couple of cards that I've done in the past using the Artistically Asian stamp set. You can see those cards here and here. Take a look at this one:

  • Since I'm going to be cutting about 30 packages I wanted to make sure I would have the paper to do it. That's where the In Color Designer Series Paper Stacks really come in handy. They have four 12" x 12" sheets of every design in every In Color, so with 2 paper stacks, I have all I need! The colours I'm using here are Basic Gray and Flirty Flamingo.
  • The watercolour background you see on the Shimmery White cardstock is made using a Clear Mount Block H and Stampin' Write Markers in Rose Red, Melon Mambo and Flirty Flamingo at the top. I coloured about a third of the block with each colour starting with Rose Red at the bottom. I spritzed the block with a bit of water and "stamped" the block onto the left side of the Shimmery White cardstock . You can use a paper towel or tissue to blot the puddles of ink and water on the paper or let them run and dry naturally. Here I blotted them and dried the paper using the Heat Tool.
  • I stamped the images from Artistically Asian in Basic Black Archival Ink. The sentiment was stamped on a small piece of Vellum cardstock. It needs to be dried using the low speed on the Heat Tool to be sure that the ink dries properly and doesn't smear.
  • The layers are adhered together and the vellum is attached using some extra thin glue dots from one of my Paper Pumpkin kits. They don't show as much as the regular ones. You can also add a dot of Liquid Multipurpose glue and spread it really thin.
