Flamingo Card By Crystal Schneider

Hello AI fans!

I'm having a crazy busy week so far so glad it is almost the weekend. 

This week I have been playing with the Flamingo Twist Ties 4984 stamp set. 

I started with a pre-scored Twist Tie Card which made this card so simple and fast to make. With the pre-folded card base I didn't have to do any measuring. I stamped the image using Memento Onyx Black so I could color my image with alcohol markers. 

After I stamped my images I lined up my dies and with some low stick tape (or I just use blue painters tape and stick it to my clothes to remove some stick) to hold the dies in place. Run through your die cutting machine. I love how they twist their necks together and I love the heart around their heads. 

I colored in the flamingos with alcohol markers then inked the inside with some orange, yellow, and pink ink to make it look like there was a sunset behind them. After that I was not liking the edge of my inking so I placed a piece of blue paper inside and traced the heart. I cut the heart out and attached it inside the card.

Spectrumn Noir Markers:
CT3, BGR3, BGR5, IS2, AP1, FS9, AG3, GT2, OR3, DP2

Have a great Thursday!
