Flamingo Tickled Pink Card

I made this beautiful card with my Stampin' Up! Flamingo Lingo stamp set. I've always loved flamingos so of course I love this set LOL! I really like how this turned out. The colors are gorgeous and I the design is cool too. Here's how to make it:

First cut a 5 3/4" x 9" piece of Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wonder card stock and fold it in half for the base, a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo for the middle layer, a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" piece of glossy white for the front, a 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Wisteria Wonder for the image's first layer, a 2 1/8" x 3 1/8" piece of Melon Mambo for the image's middle layer and a 2" x 3" piece of of white for the image. Next create the background with the salted background technique. Click here for an awesome tutorial. Here's how to do it:

First press the lid of your dye ink into the pad OR squirt a few drops of re-inker into the lids of the ink pads, I used Melon Mambo and Wisteria Wonder. Then spritz the glossy card stock with water and use an aqua painter to pick up some Melon Mambo ink and smear it on the card stock. Repeat with the Wisteria Wonder ink. Next sprinkle the card stock with salt, spritz it again with water and allow it to dry completely either by air or a heat tool. Then use either your fingers or a paper towel to brush off the salt crystals and continue making the card. 

Next sponge the edges of the 2" x 3" piece of white card stock with Melon Mambo then Wisteria Wonder ink, attach it to the Melon Mambo middle layer then to the Wisteria Wonder layer then to the front layer. Then stamp the flamingo, six flowers, sentiment and it's background in Wisteria Wonder and Melon Mambo inks and cut them out. Next attach the self-adhesive rhinestones to each flower's center, attach all items to the front layer with mini pop dots, attach the base to the Melon Mambo middle layer, then to the base and enjoy!
