Flirty flamingos and spring flowers
Hello everyone, it’s Tina here to share a little inspiration for the new March release at Alex Syberia Design Etsy shop.
My first card features a couple of lowey dowey flamingos in spring colors, because I’m soooo ready for spring! To make one of the flamingos more feminine I also printed the Springtime flower image.
I fuzzy cut the flowers, cutting part of it off so it would fit on top of the flamingo’s head. I’ll be honest, it was a tricky one to cut, but I think she looks fabulous! What do you think? I also gave her a couple of eyelashes.
I know, flamingos aren’t normally pink but rather a more subdued coral. But “normal” went missing so I colored them pink! Copic colors used:
RV25, RV13, RV11, RV10 + C9, C7
Y28, YR21, YR20, YR000
YG06, YG03, YG01
Using Slim Card dies from Simple and Basic I placed the flamingos on a panel cut from bronze glitter cardstock before adhering to the base which I’d blended with a bit of Spun sugar oxide ink. The sentiment is from My favorite things Flamazing.
For my second card I used the Happy Flowers slimline panel.
I started by lightly ink blending the panel using Squeezed lemonade, Wild honey and Abandoned coral distress inks.
Then I colored in the flowers with Copic markers in similar colors.
Y17, Y08, Y13 + YR27, YR24, YR23
YR09, YR68, Y38, Y21 + E37, E99, E97
R29, R24, R22 + E18, E35, E15, E13
For extra detail I added shading to some of the petals for a dimensional look with a W3 Copic marker and highlights with a white gelly roll pen.
I adhered the panel to the scalloped slim card panel before adhering to the card base. I wanted the sentiment to stand out yet not overpower the wonderful spring colors and this thin MFT word die was perfect.
Thanks for stopping by!
Stay safe, and happy crafting!
