MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge | Flamazing Day

*This is my second post of the day, please see below for my Clearly Besotted Teaser post*
Hello there, I am back with my last guest post for My Favorite Things this month for their Wednesday Sketch Challenge. This week we are on Sketch 387, I flipped the sketch to create a horizontal card. I also used a bit of artistic licence with the length of the three elements, as I really wanted to use these wonderful flamingos!

I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and cutting the Stitched Triple Peek-a-Boo Window Die from it to create windows. I took the sentiment form the new Let's Flamingle stamp set and stamped this on to the panel below the windows, using black ink. I took a white A2 card base and masked off the edges of the card. I then stamped the new Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Background stamp on to it using more black ink and removed the masks. I love this background stamp!
I took three of the flamingos from the Let's Flamingle stamp set and stamped these on to white cardstock. I coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours I used are listed below the supplies section) and die cut them out using the coordinating Die-namics dies. The window panel was added to the card base with foam tape and then the flamingos added on top with a combination of tape runner and foam tape. To finish , I added a little Crystal Glaze to their beaks.

  1. Oh I’m in love with these flamingos x

  2. It’s gorgeous Michelle, just love the layout with the peekaboo windows too. How do you colour without going over the black edges on their necks! i would be hopeless colouring those bits in 😂, Llisa xx

  3. They work so well with that pretty pink against the polka dots. They do make me giggle with their extremely long legs! xx
