Elemental Inspiration - Daring Cardmakers

Hello everyone,

This week's challenge over at Daring Cardmakers is to pick at least three elements from this gorgeous inspiration image ...


For my card, I pulled the red/black/pink colour combo, the flamingo, and the balloons ...


I really enjoyed using this layered stamp set from Hero Arts to create the flamingo, and will definitely be making more flamingo-themed cards. There are some brilliant sentiments in the set, but this time I wanted my flamingo to be holding a balloon, and I thought it would be fun to use this string word stamp instead. To make the balloon, I die cut a heart from scrap white card, coloured it with one of the inks I'd used to stamp the image and finished it with a touch of sparkle from my clear Wink of Stella pen.

There are some gorgeous examples made by the DT to inspire you - pop over to Daring Cardmakers to check them out and you can also link up to share your own creations.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, see you again soon :o)

Love Annie xxx
