Fabulous Flamingo Team Colour Challenge. In April last year I was at OnStage in Amsterdam. If you don’t know, this is a Demonstrator only event when we get to see new products, have training presentations and there is Prize Patrol.
Now I love getting prizes, but on this occasion I thought I ‘won’ the least attractive of all the sets that were available. Strangely, of all the sets given out, this is probably the one I have used most often. I should add that I paid good money for the others, so you would think I would use them more. But, as is often the way of these things, I have proved myself wrong. Admittedly, I generally use it with my tongue firmly in my cheek, just to prove that I can use it, or to have a joke with my Team Members.
The challenge I alluded to above is to use at least 3 of 5 colours on one project. When I saw the colour choice, Fabulous Flamingo was an obvious choce, so I grabbed it, again! The colours are:
I used the Stamparatus for the Flamingo body, as this gives perfect positioning every time. If you are making losts of the same card, you just keep switching your cards out, as often as you want. The rest of the stamping was with blocks and included some second and third generation stamping.
I decided to include more of the colours in the cardbase and mat, so it may seem like a strange choice, but I think it works.
Do you have a stamp set that you use a lot, but thought you never would? I would love to hear from you, just leave a comment below.
