Thinking of You, Flamingo

August 19, 2016

I just bought the Lawn Fawn Flamingo Together and Plan On It stamp sets. As soon as I opened my package, I knew I wanted to make a card with both the flamingo and the tiny island.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I started by die cutting a stitched rectangle of water color cardstock. I cut a stitched circle from the panel and used this to create my scene. I stamped everything in Antique Linen Distress Ink and tried no line coloring again. I used Distress Inks to add all of the colors.

I used a grey ink for the sentiment because I wanted to give the card a softer feel.

After the water colored circle was dry, I assembled my card. I adhered the circle flat to the kraft card base. I popped the rest of the stitched rectangle up on fun foam.

One thought on “Thinking of You, Flamingo”

  1. What a wonderful Summery card you’ve created here! I love how you framed it out so that it looks like we are peeking through a window at a gorgeous beach scene. The colors are just dreamy and I love how you made the sentiment so universal and heart-warming. I would’ve never thought to combine a beach with a “thinking of you” theme, but it is PERFECT! You’ve inspired me and I’m so glad you shared your talents with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
