Seeing Pink...and Some Knobby Knees

I visited Scrap-a-Latte last week...
( a favorite small local stamp and scrap shop East of where we live, here on Long Island)
and picked up a sweet little Reverse Confetti flamingo stamp and die set called THINK PINK.
I'm kinda picky about flamingo stamps/images
and up until now...
I hadn't found a Flamingo set that caught my eye.
Until...I spotted this Reverse Confetti set
I was drawn to this set for a few reasons
The size of the flamingos...
and the 2 additional stamps that came with it.

I also picked up lots of other card making bodies...
(emphasis on LOTS)
including the great Summery Photoplay print paper 
that I also used when creating this card

I stamped and colored the images with Copic Markers
then cut them out with the companion die set.
I prepared enough of each image to create 4 cards.
Next...I cut out the Arched Stax pieces (Arched Stax Dies by MFT)
and brushed ink on each to add
I chose a light green LCI metallic card stock color
and a pink matte card stock color for matting & layering
I assembled the card using foam dimensionals and fun foam for added dimension.

this is what I whipped up!
I opted to color the the largest center image to resemble a patch of opposed to using blue to resemble I've seen done most time.
(The water is portrayed in the inked blue background)
When inking the arched die cut piece...
I made sure to add the yellow in the area where I knew that I would place the sun.
The flamingos and arched die cut were positioned what foam dimensionals and fun foam...
and rolled glue dots
so there's lots of dimension on this card.
I always use rolled glue dots in place of foam dimensionals in small and tiny spots...
On this card...I used the rolled glue dots behind the flamingos feet...and behind there heads. 

I had so much fun creating this stack of 4 identical cards.
I'm happy with how the color came together...
The images were nice to color...
(I LOVE the center image...with the ground and tall grass)
and yes..
I LOVE the flamingos and there knobby knees!

Thanks for visiting today, my crafty and creative friends...
Have a wonderful day!
