Hello friends! Welcome to the My Favorite Things May release countdown day 3! Today, my card showcases the new FLAMAZING stamp set called Let's Flamingle. Such a fun set, perfect for making summer themed cards!!

To begin, I stamped the flamingos with Cement Gray Hybrid Ink (a must have if you love the no-line coloring look) and colored them with Copic markers. I also used colored pencil for the legs and a white gel pen to add details and highlights. After, I cut them out with the coordinating Let's Flamingle Die-namics.

For my front panel, I inked blended the water with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on A2 size smooth Bristol paper and ink blended the sky with Tumbled Glass as well. I used the sprayer to add texture to the water. Once it dried, I stamped the sentiment with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink.

To create interest and to build my scene, I used the sand and cloud dies from Beach Scene Builder Die-namics to die-cut Bristol paper. I inked the sand with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxides, the little island with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, and the clouds with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to add some color. I added splatters of Vintage Photo Distress Oxides diluted with water to the sand.

To finish, I adhered the scene building elements and one of the flamingos with double sided tape and the remaining three flamingos with mounting foam tape for dimension to the front panel.
