Flamingo Couple with A Day for Daisies

Hello! I am happy to share my 2nd post as a Design Team member for A Day for Daisies. Today, I am sharing the new and fantastic Flamingo Couple. I chose to work with this image because I am positively a flamingo fanatic. I have collected them for many, many years, and I just love them. So this was the perfect image for me.

They are so sweet! I used watercolors on the image, and I touched up the outline a bit with my small Black PITT pen from Faber-Castell. Sometimes with watercolors, the original image gets washed out from the paint, so I like to go over it a bit to make it stand out again.

I kept the background simple, and layered up some fun patterned paper scraps that I had laying around. I added a few fun pink gems that had a black mottling on them too.

There are lots of other feathered friends being featured on the A Day for Daisies Blog. Please go and check them all out! Thanks fr stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I love the soft coloring effect given by the watercolor medium. This is image is a sweet one.
