Be a Flamingo






Birds are really in right now and the Jefferson and Wilson Stamp Sets features the latest birds from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I used both of these sets for today’s card but our little flamingo is the star.




The flamingo image was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder on top of a piece of cardstock already heat embossed with the new Rosa Embossing Powder. A copic marker was used to carefully color the beak and legs and the image was fussy cut.








 

The background behind the flamingo was created by masking and repeatedly stamping two of the birds from the Wilson set. This was die cut with Spellbinders’ Wonky Rectangle die and Chocolate Sparkle Embossing Powder added to the edges using the Distressed Embossing Technique. This was layered on green, die cut with a larger Wonky Rectangle. A Versamarker was run around the edges and covered with Rosa EP to create the look of another layer.




The sentiment was embossed with Chocolate Sparkle EP and then Rosa EP was added to the "Flamingo" with a glue pen.  This was layered on green die cut with a tag die and added to a pink layer covered with Rosa EP.

To add a tropical flair, pink flowers and green leaves were die cut with Sue Wilson Designs Perfect Peony Open Petals die set. Sparkle EP was added to the flowers, they were all shaped, and arranged on the card front. Pink jewels were added to the centers.



I hope this card made you smile!
