Flamingo Tutorial With Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

Hey everyone, today I have a really fun tutorial on the Spectrum Noir Blog. Just click HERE to go to my Coloring Flamingos tutorial. 

I had a lot of fun with this image by From the Heart Stamps. It was actually a Freebie image back in May. My oldest daughter loves flamingos right now so I as soon as I saw I just had to have it! And even better, it was free. So fun! 

The CR color family of Spectrum Noir markers is the perfect set for getting that salmon pinkish flamingo color.  I colored up quite a few of these little birds for a few different projects. 

So go check out my tutorial and have fun coloring up some flamingos of your own. 

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

  2. This is such a fabulous card! I love the sassy attitude of your flamingo and how it is a tribute to all things pink and girly! It made me smile and I enjoyed your write-up, too. Isn't it funny to see what phases our kids go through? I'm glad your daughter is in flamingo mode so the rest of us can enjoy this great card! Thanks for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

  4. Hehe - this is the second card I have looked at today that have used this image, with two very differet colour schemes. It is such a versatile digi! I love the sentiment you have used with this, and the emphasis on pink by using neutral colours for the rest of the card.

    Thankyou for sharing over at Creative Moments,
