The May Kit is a fantastic new interactive kit with animation stamps. I'll be sharing an animated flamingo card in a couple of days but today I'm going to share another idea with the card kit, for those who want traditional card ideas for the other components in the kit! I used one of the watercolor preprinted panels with Distress Inks and a water brush pen for this fun flamingo card.
The flamingo was watercolored with Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks. The beak was colored with Black Soot, Carved Pumpkin, and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks. The water was watercolored with Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks, the heart was watercolored with Barn Door Distress Ink, and the sky and eye were watercolored with Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey Distress Inks. Once dry, I added detail to the watercolored design with a white glaze pen. I die cut the panel with a Stitched Rectangle Die.
An additional greeting from the Thankful Heart Stamp Set was stamped on black cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed white embossing powder. I trimmed the phrase into a thin strip and then adhered the strip over the watercolored background as shown.
Glossy Accents was added to the heart, beak, and eye of the background. Nuvo Crystal Drops in Red Berry, Carnation Pink, and Pale Gold were adhered to the panel and then I adhered the whole thing to a top fold card base.
