Once I had all of the die-cutting finished, I added some shading to the body and feathers with Copic markers. You don’t need to do this, but you know I love to color…even on die-cuts! Plus, I think it adds a lot of dimension and details to the flamingos!
Next, I die-cut the A7 Aloha Tropical Leaf Cover Plate Die from dark teal card stock. I absolutely LOVE this die!! Don’t be surprised to see it on most of my tropical cards in the upcoming weeks!! It was adhered to an A7 panel of aqua cardstock, then onto a white A7 card base. The flamingos were adhered to the background, their bodies with foam tape and their legs with liquid adhesive.
The sentiment is from the Tropical Birds Stamp Set, it was white heat embossed onto black card stock. I cut it out with its' Coordinating Die and adhered it to my panel with foam tape. The tiny flowers are included in the A7 Aloha Tropical Leaf Cover Plate Die. They were cut from blush card stock, and shaded with COPICS.
I am tickled pink with how this turned out!! These dies are absolutely amazing, as is the rest of the Tropical Bliss Collection!!
Thank you so much for stopping by!! I hope you have a great day and I’ll see you soon!!
