Good morning! Well Friday's here again, and today I'm sharing Miss Flashy Flamingo with you. Hence the Flashy Flamingo Friday title. I made this card with The Flamingo die from The Scrapping Cottage. I cut the pieces with the die and Georgia Pacific white card stock, assembled them with a wee bit of glue, then started coloring with my Copic markers. This is a technique that I just love, and I'm always amazed at how I can go back and add details. Many times (and I do mean many), I may not like the way a piece is coming together for me, so I'll put it aside and work on something else. Later, I will go back, and start working on it again, and it will turn out so much better than I imagined. I guess it's a matter of perspective. Whatever it is, that's exactly what happened with this image.
Do you ever notice that when you see flamingos proudly displayed in someone's yard that many times they are surrounded by lots of other "stuff"? That's what I was going for with this card. Not only do we have one flashy little flamingo chick here, but I surrounded her with bright colors, patterns, and of course, some bling! My aunt has a friend who just loves flamingos and she snaps up nearly every flamingo card I make, so I know this flashy gal will get a good home.
I'm so happy you could stop by today. I wish you a blessed day filled with everything you love, and especially some happy stamping!
