Pink Flamingo Birthday Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Pink Flamingo Birthday Card:o)

I made this card for my cousin Snežana, who's birthday is tomorrow. :o)

To make this card I used stamps from a brand new, GORGEOUS 'Tropical Fun' stamp set and sentiment from 'All Occasions' stamp set . I made my own background using three tiny heart die cuts from 'Stinks' dies set.


How I made this card...

I stamped a flamingo on a watercolor paper and colored it in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the flamingo and traced edges with black marker. I softened the flamingo on a soft working mat using stylus ball.

I stamped another flamingo on a white cardstock paper and fussy cut the flamingo leaving thin white border around it. I colored the flamingo in black.

Then I glued together two flamingos, watercolored one and black one. I did this to make the image thicker, as the watercolor paper I use is very thin.

Next up was a background. I randomly die cut tiny hearts on a white cardstock paper panel. I used only the panel and left die cut hearts for another project.

Lastly, I heat embossed in white on a black cardstock paper a sentiment 'Birthday Wishes' and cut the stripe to a desirable size.

With all pieces ready, I assembled the card. I glued 3-D foam squares on the back of the panel and glued it on a white top folded card base. The panel and card base are same size.

Then I glued foam tape on the sentiment stripe and placed the sentiment on the card. Lastly, I glued more 3-D foam on the flamingo and glued it on the card.  I'm very satisfied with a result. :o)
