I am back today with a sparkly whimsical holiday card made with a stencil, glitter paste and the cutest flamingo ever!
I started with applying Purple Glitz Glitter gel on kraft cardstock through the Herringbone stencil. I used Pixie spray first on the stencil and it ensured it stayed put while adding the gel with a stencil pal.
While the background was drying I stamped and coloured the flamingo from the Oh Deer stamp set with Copic markers and cut it out with the coordinating die. By the way this set is on SALE now at the Pink and Main online store! I cut a piece of kraft cardstock, matted it with purple cardstock and die cut a stitched fishtail banner from Ice Rink sparkle sheet. I also cut a smaller banner from purple cardstock and layered them on top of each other.
I assembled the card and used the top part of the sparkly banner as snow under the flamingo. The sentiment I stamped on yellow cardstock and cut it down to a flag shape with my scissors.
As a finishing touch I stamped a couple of white snowflakes around the flamingo and covered the beak and legs with glossy accents. I also added clear shimmer to its hat and emphasized the eye with a black glaze pen.
I hope you got inspired and will try this technique!
See you soon,
