Simon Says … Hint of Pink with Hero Arts


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the last week’s challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Hint of Pink

This week we are showcasing Hero Arts Products.  You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


As soon as I saw the words PINK and HERO ARTS together I knew I had the perfect stamp set for this challenge.  The Colour Layering Flamingo set is possibly my favourite Hero Arts set of all time.  I’ve used it so much and I’ll never get bored of it!  For the background I stamped one of the images from the Brushtrokes set from Tim Holtz in Cracked Pistachio Oxide Ink.  I spritzed some gold Heidi Swapp shimmer over the top and set it aside to dry.  Meanwhile I stamped my flamingo using 3 different Simon Says Stamp inks (listed below) using the MISTI to make sure everything was lined up perfectly and added the beak and legs in Smoke ink.  I die cut the Hugs from black glitter paper using the Avery Elle Simply Said: Hugs die and cut a strip of MFT striped grey paper before assembling everything on the front of the card.  I finished it off with a few little dots of Nuevo jewel drops in Rosewater here and there.

Touch of Pink HA

    What stamp could be more perfect for a “Hint of Pink” challenge than a flamingo? Love your card, especially the little details such as the gold splatters and the Rosewater drops. So glad I may join you and the rest of the team for the Wednesday challenge this month!
