Tropical Chic Flamingo ~ HSS294, JUGS449, JAI417

Hello stampers!  We are back with a brand new challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  It's an Inspiration Challenge this time and the chosen theme is flamingos!  I just love this!  I was inspired by the flamingos, of course, and the colors in the bottom right picture.  
I'm also playing along with Just Us Girls #449--Watercolor Background and Just Add Ink #417--Just Add "T".  My "T" is tropical!

I combined a couple of stamp sets here--the always awesome Fabulous Flamingo and the wonderful new Tropical Chic.  I'm loving the variety of leaves and the matching dies that this set coordinates with!  I think the card possibilities could be endless using this set!
I chose to only use the solid image from Fabulous Flamingo as I wanted to keep my flamingo "silhouetted".  
I did a watercolor wash on the background and did some spattering as well.  
a few sequins and some old Coastal Cabana ribbon (which I still have from when Coastal Cabana was an In-Color) finished off my card.

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Fabulous Flamingo, Tropical Chic
Ink: Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party
Paper: Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Whisper White, Watercolor
Accessories: Petal Burst EF, Tropical Thinlits dies, Iridescent sequins, Coastal Cabana ruffled ribbon

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

  2. What a fabulous tropical feel Jenny, I love how the background colours tie in your flamingo. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
