Hawaiian Flamingo

My inspiration for this card comes from this photo from the National Geographic Art Store: http://national-geographic.cafepress...e=Wall%20Decal The Honolulu Zoo has a large flamingo population. Kaleo, with his lei, is a Hawaiian flamingo . I actually colored this guy with some hot pink Prismacolor pencils but against the yellow background, he looks rather orange like the one in the inspiration photo. The lei flowers were made with a set of Nellie Snellen 3-D flower punches---one punches & the other one embosses the flower to give it dimension.  The stamp is by Whipper Snapper Designs.

It's a sunny, flamingo kind of day...get out and enjoy it.   Paulette


  1. GREAT summery colors!! What a good way to use those bright colors. Cute card and love the image.

  2. Love these bright colours and your beautiful signature flowers. The stacked one is lovely and the smaller ones make the cutest lei. That is such a fun stamp and beautifully coloured, Paulette.
