I love her water colored background and then all the bright colored leaves and flower too, with that cute little fox all nestled in. Since I don't have a fox stamp (yet!), I got to thinking about what I could use, and started thinking about the Some Like It Hot set. Now I do realize that this is a Summer and not Fall set, but my crazy brain started wondering what a Flamingo would look like in Fall colors...and well, here you go:
I used Peerless water colors to create my background (Orange Yellow, Japonica Scarlet, & Royal Crimson for the splattering). The leaves (Songbirds) were die cut and water colored with the same colors as the background and also some Pure Poppy & Green Parakeet. The Flamingo was stamped in Melon Berry and Orange Zest, which I thought were appropriate colors after sitting out in the sun all Summer! His legs I inked up in Berry Sorbet. For the flowers, I used Harvest Gold and Summer Sunrise on one and Orange Zest and Canyon Clay on the other, and then used an Aqua pen on both to give them a more water colored look. My sentiment comes from the Winter Hills set, and I finished with a few sequins. Not sure I created a Fall looking card like Kay's, but I love the colors I used, and hey, it is still Summer and stinkin HOT and HUMID where I live!
