Hello everyone Holly here today and I hope you are having a great week so far! Today I’m sharing a fun card using the Adorable Flamingos from Avery Elle.
I started by die cutting a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper using the Wonky Stitches Die set from Avery Elle. Then I added some Distress Inks in Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade & Mustard Seed to create my background. I tried creating a background with tape and a mini ink blending tool but in the end I didn’t like it. I really love the loose look you can create with these inks buy smooshing them onto the cardstock. I used the the trees and bird stamps from the set to create the scene with some VersaFine Black ink.
Then I stamped the flamingo and grass images in VersaFine ink onto some Bristol cardstock and colored them in using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush.
#22 Pink Flamingo,#21 Light Carmine, #10 Black, #31 Cobalt Blue, #40 Green & #47 May Green.
I cut the images out with the coordinating dies and adhered them to the panel. Then I added some Fun Foam to the image panel and adhered it to a top folding card base. For the sentiment I die cut the banner from the Wonky Stitches Die set and then I added some color with the Blue Zig Marker and adhered it with Foam Tape. I wanted a little bit of sparkle so I added some Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
I love how Bright and Fun this card is.. and it’s Perfect for anyone who’s a Flamingo Fan!
