Flamingo Bay



If you like flamingos, then Flamingo Bay from Sparkle N Sprinkle should be on your "I need" list. :-)

After stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, I colored the image with Copic markers and then added a piece of Super Adhesive Sheets to the top of the colored image.  This was covered with Cloud Nine Velvet glitter to give it a soft, shimmery look.

The background was die cut from the Chevron cutting plate from Taylored Expressions.  Next, I randomly applied VersaMark around the edges and covered it with Stickum Powder embossing powder.  I wanted parts of the white cardstock to show through, giving it more of a visual interest.  After heat setting, I immediately covered the hot Stickum Powder with Neon Flamingo glitter.

The sentiment was created using some Super Adhesive Sheets covered with more Neon Flamingo glitter and Staz-on ink.

I twisted two shades of pink ribbons together and attached it at an angle with the Tiny Attacher from Tim Holtz.  I also added a couple Xs with the Tiny Attacher at the top and colored them with a Copic marker.
