Jil is here to share her first project with the Flamingo Wiggle Wobble with a bit of tropical fun! This is a great quick photo tutorial for creating your first Wiggle Wobble card!

Hello Ai fans!

I placed the flamingo stamps into my Mini Misti and stamped them onto Strathmore Bristol 140 lb. paper with Jet Black Archival Ink.  I needed to stamp second impressions of both leg parts and the wing.

I used the matching die cuts with my die cut machine to cut out all of the parts.  Tip: Be careful to align the holes for the brads.

I colored the flamingo using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush.
Flamingo - Light Pink, Carmine Pink
Beak - Light Gray, Gray
Glasses - Light Cobalt

 I added a Black Glaze pen to her eyes. Then I assembled the flamingo with brads. This is what she looks like finished.

I added a very simple watercolor scene to the background onto a piece of Strathmore 140 lb. Watercolor Paper. I added in a horizon line using Tropical 101 & blended out some color onto my Ai Watercolor Palette to add more Tropical marker below the horizon line with my #4 WC Brush.  I then added Tombow marker 912 to my  Ai Watercolor Palette and blended it below the water. Next, I went above the horizon line and stamped the clouds from the Watercolor EZ Project B.  I scribbled Magenta 20Steel Blue 17 and Tombow marker 565 to my  Ai Watercolor Palette. One at a time, I applied each color to the sky using my #4 WC Brush

I used some DCWV papers I had in my scrap drawer to complete the card. As I was putting the finished flamingo onto the card, I added her onto the included action wobble and watched her dance around.

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Day!
