You are a flamingo...

Hello, hello!

I'm back with a third guest post for the brand new stamp company, Witt & Sass! This week the featured stamp set is Tropical Party and it features a fabulous Carmen Miranda-esque flamingo. I also added in the Background Builder Palm Tree a couple times to jazz up the background scene that I colored in behind her. I had a vision of this fab flamingo wading in tropical waters at sunset and did my best to create the light and flair of that time of day in the scene. It was a challenge to get that glow that I was after but I really love how she turned out. 
Now if you head on over to the official Witt & Sass blog there is loads more inspiration to be found. Amy has put together an amazing team of card artists who constantly "tropic like it's hot"! And if you haven't joined the Witt & Sass Facebook group yet, you can find it here. :) 

Have a crafty day!
