Welcome to Poppystamps! Now that summer is knocking on our doors, it's time to think about vacations! How about Florida? This Fine Flamingo is happy to welcome you to the Sunshine State, or anywhere else warm and sunny! Even if it's cold where you are now, you can shake off the winter blues with vivid colors, fine flamingos, and floral displays in bright colors!
I started with a grey background panel, and framed it with a white Pointed Rectangle Frame. I added the Fine Flamingo in a hot pink, and then arranged the Blooming Rose and Rose Stem to look like an opening through a garden grove. I wanted each flower to look slightly different, so I tweaked the die cuts just a little, adding a leaf here, or cutting off a curly vine there. When I was happy with the lay-out, I cut each flower in two shades of yellow, orange, and blue, and glued the pieces in place with craft tweezers. The Stitched Fluttering Butterflies made a bright finishing touch.
Thanks so much for joining us today! We love sharing our designs with you, and we also love to see what our Poppystamps friends and family like to create too!
