Hello Colourcraft friends. Gail here starting the April fun here at the Colourcraft blog. Today I want to share a quick and simple card using Colourcraft Aztec paint and Brusho powders. We all sometimes need a quick card so I hope you like it.
I started by painting a piece of scrap card with pink Aztec Lustre craft paint. Then I die cut using a flamingo die. Isn't that just the perfect colour!! And I love that the shimmer makes the details so clear.
I decided to use a black card base to best show of my shimmering flamingo. I die cut some more scraps with a stitch landscape die and coloured them with a weak Ost Blue watercolour wash. Just use a little sprinkle in a small container and add some water. This blue is quite intense so I used quite a lot of water.
I found a pink base card that was a good match, but decided to make it perfect by painting a frame of the same pink Aztec paint.
Fluff up your flamingo's wing, add him to the card and done!! I decided not to add a sentiment. I can always do that later, but for now it's an any day card.
Thanks for dropping by. Hugz
