I have been a long time admirer of Tracy's work; I first came across her beautiful creations on Pinterest, and now regularly view her blog Bedlam and Butterflies. I love her water colour backgrounds and have decided to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) that element, here the cards that have inspired my today:
I also share Tracy's love for Pink, so I have used the new 2016-2018 In Colour Flirty Flamingo as the feature colour of my card, here is my creation:
There is a bit of a story behind this card,.. I excitedly unpacked my latest order on Friday evening, there is Pop of Paradise, hello Miss Flamingo - I have plans for you! then I became a bit perplexed when I had everything out of the box... it appears someone forgot to order water colour paper.... oh No! what to do! Then I remembered Shimmery White card stock it doesn't mind getting wet, so I've used that as an alternative for watercolour paper, and I must say I do quite like shimmer on my finished card.
I still wanted my flamingo to be the feature of the card, so I did a "reverse water colour background" leaving the centre of the card untouched with the Flirty Flamingo watercolour coming in from the edges. I used a sponge dauber to layer Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo to obtain depth of colour on Miss Flamingo with a touch of Crumb Cake on the beak.
