This week we are back to a Colour Challenge..

I really enjoy doing these challenges and I think the colour challenges are my favorite as they make me use colours I may not normally use.

It so easy to get stuck in using the same colours over and over again.

GDP089_Colour_ChallengeThis week I’m also using a stamp set I would most likely not have bought if it was left up to me.

I won this set at the Stampin’ Up! on Stage event in April. I have been putting off using it as I just wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. But these colours really work with it, so I hope you like my card.


This set is called Fabulous Flamingo 143758 and will be available to order as from the 1st June.

It is a 3 step stamp….and 3 step stamps and me always have a battle to who is going to win….I like them but I always have trouble lining everything up. Thankfully I had my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig handy.

The Stamp-a-ma-jig is great for when you need to line up titles or images as the 2 or 3 step stamping.

Now as I said the Fabulous Flamingo is a 3 step process and I have used only 2 colours being Calypso Coral and Basic Black, but as you can see I have 2 tones in the Calypso Coral.

This is how I did it…….

  • Using the solid body image I inked it up with the Calypso Coral and then stamped off twice on a piece of scratch paper. This makes the image much lighter.
  • With the full body Image stamp and the Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp the image with full strength ink. I have added a Video I found on YouTube by The Mad Stamper on how to use this great tool.
  • I then stamped the outline images doing the legs and then the body with Basic Black again using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.

Hope you like my entry in this weeks challenge. Please go to Global Design Project and have a look at what others have done for this challenge.
