Flamenco de Amor

If you follow this blog, you've probably noticed that I have a soft spot for pink flamingos; so you can imagine how excited I was to see a pink flamingo die and stamp set by Recollections at Michael's. Unfortunately, once I got it home I realized that the die faces in the opposite direction of the stamps. I worked around the issue, but it was annoying. Here, I cut the shape from a shiny pink paper & heat-embossed the stamp in neon pink. I also die-cut it from craft foam to pop it up.

The doily design was inspired by Desíre's folded circle embellishment; the white fronts are covered with a gray-dotted doily. The banner is decorated with tape and more of the gray-dotted doily; I stamped the sentiment (Latina Crafter) directly onto it with pink ink. The blue background paper is stamped in a platinum ink with a heart-shaped stamp from the same Latina Crafter set. The hearts are punched from a neon pink paper & inked with the platinum ink.






Inspiration:
Latina Crafter: Sketch + Color + Theme (+ Latina Crafter stamps)
Sweet Stampin: Something New (all stamps/dies are new)


Thank you for visiting & inspiring my crafting!
