Flirty Fun

Wow, am I really posting again?   I must have too much time on my hands.

I decided to try my hand at Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paw Challenge # 28 which was to create a love themed card.  Anyone who knows me, knows I am not a sappy, lovey-dovey type person, but I decided to give it a try.

So I searched through my stash of Newton's Nook Designs stamps (I do have many). and I decided to play with this Flirty Flamingo set. And, since I'm smack dab in the middle of a stencil class at StampNation, I paired these fun flamingos with Simon Says Stamp's Mosaic Heart Stencil.  I inked up the stencil with three inks from Altenew's Red Cosmos Ink Pad Set - Ruby Red, Coral Berry and Frost Pink in order to give the heart an 'ombre" effect.  I did some simple coloring of the flamingos with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, and added clear Wink of Stella to the mosaic heart.

Such a cute card - and it doesn't have to be used for Valentine's Day.  In fact, I think I may use this as a wedding card!

Thanks for looking!

This card is so adorable! I love how the big mosaic heart is floating above the flamingo couple! What a fun pink Valentine!
