Tickled Pink

 Hello happy stampers! I shared this card last week during the Gina K inspiration hops, but wanted to show you the step by step photos. The images are from Tami Mayberry's latest stamp set, Gnome One Like You.

 I colored the flamingo with Copics, starting with RV29.

 Added RV25.

Added RV23.

 I filled in with YR000 and also added it to the beak.

 Added YR02 to the beak.

 Added N7.

 Added N5.

 Added N3, leaving a small highlight uncolored. After coloring, I cut out the image, minus the legs.

I sponged Memento Summer Sky on the background, using a sticky note, cut into a curve, to mask the bottom.

 Used the negative side piece of my sticky note to mask off the sky and sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves.

Stamped the flamingo on my background so he would have legs. 

 Adhered the body to the background using Pop Dots.

 I used YG91 to add a shadow under the flamingo.

 I stamped the little mushroom and rock image and used Y17, R02 and R05 to color the mushroom.

 I used N3 and N5 to color the rocks, the W3 to add shading.

I colored the larger mushroom the same way as the smaller one, cut it out and then adhered it with Pop Dots. I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and used a Passionate Pink card base. I added scoring with my Scor-Buddy and add pink gingham bow.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
