mft flamingos

I was asked to guest for My Favorite Things recently and was given some products from their May release to work with including these fun flamingo dies! 

I cut out the flamingos on watercolor paper and then used four different shades of pink and orange distress inks to color them in. I painted the stripes on the background with the same colors using washi tape as a mask. The sentiment is from the Tickled Pink stamp set which has a big variety of sentiments perfectly suited for flamingo cards.

I used my sewing machine for a stitched border around the edge of the watercolor paper. The flamingos and heart were placed on a cross-stitch oval cut out of patterned paper from the Dots and Stripes Pad from Studio Calico.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a lovely day!
