Tickled pink with Fabulous Flamingo
Today i pulled out the Fabulous flamingo set because its one of my favourites and yet I’ve not even used it! I’m absolutely gutted its not been carried over to the new 2019-2020 catalogue.
So, if you love this set then please order it now before it sells out and is no longer available. This set like many others are being retired and will not be available after 3rd June 2019.
The background was created using the Shimmery white embossing paste. I had sooooo much fun it. I mixed a small amount of paste with 1-3 drops of re inker (Melon mambo, Pumpkin pie & daffodil delight)A little goes a very long way! I initially had no idea what i was going to do, i had no plan in mind.
I pre cut watercolour cardstock 1/2″ smaller than my card base.
My card base is 5″ x 7″.
I took a scrap pieces of card, scooped up the paste and one at a time smeared it across the cardstock. I left it thicker in places to give an amazing texture.
I stamped and die cut the leaves from the Tropical chic stamp set and matching dies.
The flamingos are a 3 step stampin but i only used 2 steps on each to give more depth. I stamped the main body in Melon mambo and stamped the detailed image in black memento ink.
The second flamingo has been stamped in Flirty flamingo and over stamped in Memento black ink.
The sentiment is also from Tropical chic, stamped in Black memento ink and fussy cut.
