Flamingo Fun.{with Eclectica³ Darcy Stamps and Fibralo Pens}

I started by coating this greyboard tag with Chalk Fresco paint, then I used the fibralo pens and JoFY stencils to create this background scene. 

I scribbled on a flexi block, spritzed with water and picked up the ink with a brush. I used this to fill in the background. Then I flicked on some clean water and blotted away the colour with a paper towel. 

I used grunge paste through sequin waste around the edge, then coloured this with more of the blue wash. I stamped the heart flower head (from EDY06) onto smoothy card and coloured with the fibralo pens. 

I attached this with foam pads to give it a little height. 

I stamped and coloured the flamingo from EDY05 onto smoothy card, cut him out them glued him on. The bottom border is from EDY07 and is stamped and coloured onto card that was previously crackled. 

I decided that I didn't like the white gap between his legs, so I added a blue wash, finally I added a little treasure gold to the raised grunge paste border. 

The pens are available from PaperArtsy HERE...

  8. Wow wow absolutely awesome stunning tag. You have so many ideas and are a true inspiration. I am working with Mr Bird Punk (I have named him this as we are spending a lot of time together trying to get him right lol), I'm using fresco paint to get a weathered look with lots of rust, I keep hearing about deco art for rusting but im determined to get it right using my frescos. Thanks for all your fabulous art :-) Kezzy xxx
