Flamingo Christmas from Imagine That Digistamp for Winter Wonderland for the 4th of June, 2021

At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by ME!!!
Welcome to our sixth challenge for 2021.

Our theme is:

Christmas Birds

So here is my card:

Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme of Christmas Birds, which means that we want to see big and/or small birds on your projects.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Imagine That Digistamp:

Imagine That Digistamp shop -
Imagine That Digistamp blog -

The prize on offer for the winner is 3 digi sets of their choice.

I chose two very cute stamp sets for this challenge and the one that I chose for myself is Flamingo Christmas, as I wanted a Summery Christmas card as I live in Australia. 
So I have digitally printed the image and two sentiments from Flamingo Christmas on to X-Press It blending card and then cut out using my paper cutter (I have a new one from Creative Memories).

I have coloured the image and sentiments with the following Copics markers:
  • flamingo - RV42, RV34, R35
  • eye - BG45, BG57
  • beak - W1, W3, W5, 100
  • hat - R22, R24, R27, R29, Twinkle Stickles
  • berries - R37, R59, clear Wink of Stella
  • holly - YG11, G03, G14
  • red ribbon/socks - R22, R24, R27, R29
  • green wreath/socks - G03, G17, G19
  • sand - E81, E53, E84
  • water - BG45, B06
  • clouds - BG0000, BG000, B00
  • sky - B12, B14, B06, B18, B39
  • outline - B39
  • sentiments - BG0000, BG000, B00, blue glitter pen
I then adhered the coloured image on to a white card from Envelope Solutions.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here are some close-ups of the sentiment and colouring (hope that you can see some sparkle!):

Here are some photos of the sentiment on the inside of the card:
