Fabulous Flamingo card with Stampin' Up! stamp set

Fabulous Flamingo

I'm really getting excited about the demonstrator pre-order I'll be able to place on May 2, which is one of the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I already have several stamp sets and dies from the new catalog that I was able to order or won as part of the benefits of attending OnStage in early April.  So, today, from my OnStage swag, I'm using the Fabulous Flamingo set.        

I picked a Calypso Coral base card and used that color ink for my flamingo.  I found a wonderful complimentary paper from the new Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (DSP) Pack from the upcoming catalog, and used the mini striped black and white accent paper from the Pop of Pink DSP from the current, main catalog.  

I stamped the water in Marina Mist, and stamped the water reeds in Pear Pizzaz.  The flamingo was stamped in two steps.  The body was stamped in Archival Basic Black.  Then another part of this stamp added the legs and color to the body.  Then I decided to finish coloring the body by using Calypso Coral ink pad and an aqua painter, rather than using the third stamp in the set meant to color the body.  I also did a little coloring of the water with an aqua painter and Marina Mist, which didn't show up well in the photograph, but looks really nice in person.    


The sentiment is also from the Fabulous Flamingos stamp set.  The set includes several sentiments, but this one was a card going to my Mom, and was perfect for my needs.  I stamped it in Archival Basic Black ink and then used the Stitched Shapes Framelit dies and the Layering Oval framelits Dies to matt the sentiment.  I think I'll be using this fun set a lot this coming year.  It makes me feel like an artist because of the shading and elements I can choose to add.
