MFT AUGUST RELEASE COUNTDOWN - DAY 5

Any idea why I am tickled pink?

Well, in less than a week you will be able to get your crafty little paws on some awesome new My Favorite Things goodies!

Today I am showcasing the new Flamazing Stamp set.


The stamp set itself enables you to stamp solid Flamingo images, but you know me by now, I like to think outside the box and used the stamp and some research via Google to give my example a more "realistic" look!

What do you think?

Curious as to how I did it?

Well, I initially stamped out the sections of the Flamingo in MFT Cement Grey Hybrid ink and then with several images of real life Flamingos for reference I started mapping in the various shades of pinks and greys with Copic marker over the top of the stamped image.  If you wish to try this yourself, please make sure you select a Copic suitable ink pad in a pale colour - I learnt the hard way that I should have chosen a pink hybrid ink........ho hum, next time! Once I felt I had gone as far as I could with the pens, I swapped over to pencils to add in the finer details and highlights, constantly referring back to the photographs.

 I stamped the sentiment on a curve to follow the shape of my circular card using my Misti, again with MFT Cement Grey Hybrid ink so that I could colour over the top of it with Copic marker without fear of it bleeding.

For more inspiration and crafting goodness from my fellow Design Team members
why not hop on over to the MFT blog to see what they created today:

I'll be back soon with more Countdown fun!
