A Little Flamingo Note - Simon Says Stamp

 Good morning! I finally had a chance to break out my new distress ink color - Kitsch Flamingo - and some stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp to create a this bright and happy card to share!

I wanted to start off by playing with this new color alongside some other distress ink colors - this was my first color combo, and I have another one that I love as well (I'll share that card sometime next week - stay tuned!). For this one, I used Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet - in that order. I also added some splatters with Perfect Pearls and the Wilted Violet - smooshed onto a clear block , picked up with a wet brush, and splashed on the panel.

Sentiment was from the clever Just Because Word Mix 2 - you basically stamp a bunch of sentiments all at once, and then die cut them all in one piece. So perfect! I paired it up with (what else with this new color?!?) a Flamingo die cut. I die cut it twice from white cardstock to layer together for dimension, then once from black cardstock to add an additional shadow layer. I also added some torn strips of vellum along the bottom to add a ground for the flamingo to stand on.

The main panel was matted with black cardstock before adding the vellum, and then mounted with foam adhesive on a white cardbase. The flamingo and sentiment were also mounted with foam adhesive on the background - and a few sparkly pink jewels finish this card off perfectly!
