Flamingos on Vacation Featured May 18
I created a scene for this lovely diva flamingo by airbrushing the sand and water with my Copic markers and adding the waves with a white distress marker. The tree was inked with markers and stamped onto white before fancy cutting and adding to the beach. I stamped the palm fronds twice and cut out three of them to pop up giving it a bit more dimension. The beautiful flamingo was stamped onto a rose colored card stock and I used the white distress marker to highlight the floral pattern on her. I even added some eyelashes. lol Tiny pearls were added to the pattern on her body too. I think she is so cute. I then added the bon voyage sentiment on the lower corner using a darker blue ink.

Like the Flamingo. Especially like the floral pattern on the Flamingo. Did you know that a Flamingo gets its pink color from the food it eats.
