Pink pops for Flamingos

Hello crafters!   Today I continue my work with Flamingos for all the Thank you Cards for my daughter’s engagement party.   Can you guess??   Yup, the theme was Flamingos.   That sensational bird is really trending right now and this one is no exception.

This stamp was a gift to me by a friend.  It is a wood mount, Stampendous P250 Flamingo.   First I used the VersaFine Archival black ink to stamp and let them dry for a while.   Next I went back with watercolor pencils and my aqua painter.  Once all the panels were dry, I brought out my MISTI to stamp the sentiment “Thank you very much” from Bunch of Blossoms stamp set from Stampin’ Up! (page 135 in Annual catalog).  This set has 26 photopolymer stamps and it is another 2 step type of stamping, which I also love.
