Reading the feedback I've had, my two flamingo cards seem to be the favourites of my samples. I must admit they were mine too; I was really pleased with how they turned out. So I thought I'd start with one of those.
I've seen cards where two flamingos make a heart before and was pleased to see that the Clarity one works for this technique. It was perfect as I also had a Happy Anniversary stamp to use.
As Barbara demonstrated on TV, I used my Splodge mat to create the bird on the right. I used Adirondack black ink and stamped directly onto the Splodge mat so that I could then transfer the image to my sheet of Theuva card. I then stamped the bird on the left next to it using the second generation of ink. I've added this close-up photo as I was really impressed at how similar the stamped images are in colour using this technique.
I coloured them in with ProMarkers and cut the oval out with a Grand Scalloped Oval Spellbinders Nestabilitie before adding some Antique Linen Distress Ink. I used my Silhouette Cameo to make the thin black mat for it and the border that the ribbon is threaded through. The pink heart paper is from the Smitten Range by K & Co.
