Pop of Flamingo — Monday Montage #72

Monday Montage Banner -- October

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of ten stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

Flamingos seem to be everywhere these days, and they always bring a smile to my face.  How can a giant pink bird not make you happy?  We’re in the heat of Summer here, and I wanted to use some cool, pretty colors.  It seemed like they would work well with a tropical flamingo look, so this was an easy card to pull together.

Pop of Flamingo

I started by adding a watercolor wash of Pool Party ink on a piece of Watercolor Paper.  After that dried, I splattered on some gold Wink of Stella and some Basic Black ink.

I stamped the flamingo with Flirty Flamingo ink, added a little Melon Mambo ink onto the wing with a blender pen, and colored its beak with a bit of black ink.

Pop of Flamingo Close UpThe sentiment was stamped with Peekaboo Peach ink, and the pineapple was stamped with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive inks.  I punched out a circle of Pop of Pink Specialty dsp and placed it over some gold Metallic Thread.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog.  I always love seeing what she makes!  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!
