Swimming Birthday Flamingos

I hope you've been enjoying the inspiration from the Technique Junkies design team for the June release blog hop.    There are some fabulous stamps in this release.  If you have not seen the hop, be sure to stop by and check it out at the above link.

Today, I am using the FLAMINGO stamp.  

I stamped it three times, and colored it with Arteza real brush pens, then fussy-cut them.  I also stamped one of the flamingos on the FLAMINGOS BACKGROUND  stamp, and fussy-cut that.  

I created the background on watercolor paper using the Arteza brush pens with watercolor.  I layered the background piece onto a blue A2 card, then the craft panel, with a stitched die circle with foam tape.  I cut the legs from two of the flamingos, and added them to the background, along with the little one from the background stamp.  I added a full flamingo to the front of the card on the craft panel.  I stamped the HAPPY BIRD-DAY  stamp to the panel with Ranger archival ink.

That's it!  A fun twist on this delightful stamp.  Hope you are inspired to try something different with your stamps today.
