Flamingos Probably Wouldn't Make Great Pets

Probably not. But it still SOUNDS like a great plan, if you ask me!!! Plus, I do believe that one of these would call the other 'pet' in that lovely dovey mushy gooey kind of way. I am playing along with the CAS-ology Challenge and the Curtain Call Challenge with this fun card. I used the brand new, and super adorable, mind you, flirty flamingos from Newton's Nook Designs.

Flirty Flamingos


I stamped and embossed the image with white embossing powder on watercolor paper. I then used watercolors to add a whole bunch o' pink to the design. I highlighted some areas and made some darker to create depth. I super duper love watercolor paints. I really and truly do. A Wink of Stella black glitter brush added a touch of sparkle to their beaks. YAY! for sparkle!!!

The sentiment is a perfectly simple font from Lil' Inker Designs, called Mom and Dad Sentiments, and I love how well it worked with these little flamingos! SO much fun!

You can find all of the supplies I used in the links below.





Have a Happy!

  4. We just saw flamingos at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and I SO hoped to get a picture of two flamingos in this position (but no luck)...what a sweet stamp! Your watercoloring skills are amazing, and I LOVE how you accented the heart shape between the two flamingos. Great black border accent, too! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!
