Fabulous Flamingo

The temperature this summer in Ontario has definitely not been tropical, but I was in the mood to use the new Flamingo stamp set. Because the only flamingos I have seen have been birthday lawn signs, I googled pictures of this wonderful bird.

The image of the Flamingo was stamped in a 3 step process using the following colours:  Flirty Flamingo, Powder Pink, and Flirty Flamingo. A Basic Black marker was used to highlight the eye and bottom of the beak.

The Flamingo is standing in water stamped with Marina Mist ink; the grass was stamped with Lemon Lime twist..The tropical sky was sponged lightly with Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight and Flirtatious Flamingo.  These colours were dragged into the water.

Three palm leaves were stamped using the rock and roll method - first in Lemon Lime Twist and then the edges rolled in Garden Green.  One of these leaves was stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White card stock and fussy cut. After sponging the edges I adhered it over the other two using dimensionals.

After matting the focal image with Gold Foil, it was adhered to the Garden Green card front.  Palm leaf images were stamped on the side of this card front with Garden Green before adhering this focal image.

Supplies Used:
Stamp:  Fabulous Flamingo
Inks:  Flirtatious Flamingo, Powder Pink, Garden Green, Basic Black marker, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist
Accessories:  Dimensionals.
