Flamingo Silhouette ~ JAI208

Here is flamingo card #2 for the request that my friend made.  I used the color combo from Just Add Ink 208.....well, kinda.  Now that I look at the combo as I post this, I see it's Smokey Slate and not Sahara Sand.  I had it in my head that it was Sahara Sand.....Oh well!
Anyway, I used the same flamingo stamp that I purchased from Ebay only I used my black marker to color it all in and make it a silhouette.  I used my brayer to make the water/sky background, then sponged in the Sahara Sand.  The foliage silhouettes are from Inspired by Nature and a single stamp I bought at Hobby Lobby.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I stamped some words and splotches on the sand colored DSP as well as sponged it.  For the base card, I stamped the big image from Postage Due in Pacific Point ink. 
I added a little "Miss You" tag from the Just Saying set.
