As the temperatures here in Ohio continue to fall, it has me missing warm weather and the beach so I decided to pull out my Festive Flamingo set for this card:
I started by creating a background using the Retro Sun & Palms stencil set. Instead of using the sun portion of the stencil in the traditional way, I tilted it and ink blended over it twice for a fun look. And since I was already going non-traditional, I decided to use glitter gel for the palm trees!
Since my background was already pink, I didn’t even need to color in the flamingos. I just used Copic markers to add red on all of their accessories. I finished with a sentiment along the bottom.
This card would be easy to make assembly line style and since the coloring is limited would be a little quicker.
