Pop of Paradise from Stampin’ Up! for #CCMC409
It’s Thursday again, which means it’s time for this week’s challenge from Create with Connie & Mary! This week is a sketch challenge – phew! I do find them easier than the Colour Challenges, but then I guess the clue is in the word challenge and they are meant to encourage us to step out of our comfort zones after all! 🙂
So it’s a great sketch isn’t it? But of course I can not just follow it can I? Oh no! I had to rotate it 90 degrees clockwise, so I could get it to work with the flamingo image from Pop of Paradise!
I knew instantly I saw the sketch I would use Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper for the banners, which then led me to use Pop of Paradise from Stampin’ Up! as the stamp set for the image and the button!
I heat embossed the flamingo in white embossing powder onto watercolour paper, then water coloured Melon Mambo around him using the ink refill bottle and an Aqua painter. The Hello sentiment is simply stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, with some gold metallic thread and gold sequins to finish it off – what do you think? I hope you like it!
Please do pop over and see what the rest of the design team have come up with this week. They are a lovely group of talented ladies and have created some fantastic projects for you to see!
