Hello there! Did you head out on an adventure for this 4th of July weekend? Unfortunately we did not. We chose to take a family vacation later in the year. That's ok though as staying home meant that I could spend the day at my desk and craft till my heart's content!
While dreaming of an island vacation- this gorgeous vision popped into my head! I had left the flamingo as a solid stamped image but then I thought why not bring it to life! Give the guy some feathers!
Ok so they're not really feathers but it IS texture and it looks AWESOME! Here's a close up so you can see what I mean.
How did I do this you ask? Easy peasy! I simply punched about 15-20 of the smallest flower from the Blossom Builder punch. Then I used the stylus from the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the Stampin' Pierce mat to distress the flowers. I started in the center of the flower and with the stylus I began making a circular motion. This in turn made the little flowers curl. Next I simply folded the flowers up, added a glue dot and stuck it to the flamingo. Viola! Easy peasy!
Thanks for stopping by!
