Flirty Flamingo - Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Image may contain: food
From blushing bride to melon mambo, pink tones are fun, feminine and romantic!

I chose to play with the bright flirty flamingo from Stampin' Up!'s in-colour collection for today's Fancy Friday 'Think Pink' blog hop.

Watercolour effects are very trendy in cardmaking right now. This project features a fun, easy watercolouring technique inspired by *THIS TUTORIAL* from the talented Cindy Schuster.

When you create a fun background like this you want it to stand out!  When planning the rest of the design, I was cautious to choose elements that would allow this watercoloured panel to shine.  The Bold Butterfly shape added interest.  The black and white strips added some contrast and allowed the little Ready to Pop sentiment to stand out without covering the main panel too much.

The little flourish thinlet flower was a nice finishing touch!
