Art With Heart Colour Creations - week 25 Melon Mambo


 I'm back with week 25 of the Color Creations Showcase with the Art With Heart Team. This week we are featuring Melon Mambo which is a lovely deep pink in our Brights Color Family. 

I have just received a couple of preorder stamp sets, that as a demonstrator I was allowed to order early from the upcoming Jan to June Mini and the Sale-a-Bration brochure. I love being a demonstrator, especially when it comes with all these perks. Contact me if you would like more information on becoming a demonstrator.

Now, back to the stamping. For this card I inked up one of the sets that will be available for free during our Sale-a-bration sale that starts in January, called Darling Donkeys. Aren't they cute?

I stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White card stock and coloured with Blends Markers. He has a Melon Mambo rose in his mouth. All the colours used are listed at the end of the post. Then I very carefully fussy cut the donkey.

The donkey is mounted on a heart of Basic Black card stock from the Stitched Be Mine dies. The greeting is also from the Darling Donkeys stamp set.

I'm not sure that Camouflage patterns really go with donkeys, especially when they are pink, but...they do now. I mounted the Camouflage stamp on  my Stamparatus so that I could ink in Melon Mambo and stamp the image more than once if I needed to, and I did, to get and even coverage.

The mat is Basic Black and the card base is Thick Whisper White.
As these donkeys are a preorder they are not on the list below, but all of the other supplies I used to make this card are.

Thank you for visiting, for more Melon Mambo inspiration head to Cathy's blog for a full list of tonight's participants.

Happy stamping,
