What's the F?

Good morning everyone. I'm here today with a new challenge from the Polkadoodles blog. Although the challenge for you is now always Anything Goes the team still follow a challenge, and that challenge for us was to use something with the letter F. Now I really pushed the boat out with this one as on my card I have a Falmingo, some Feathers, some Flowers and some Foliage! Do you think that's enough F's?

To make this card I have used the lush Tropical Paradise Flamingo stamp set. The flamingo you can get as a digi download on it's own HERE. I needed to add some Foliage in there so decided to use the leaf from the Lemonade Fizz stamp set.
I used watercolour card to stamp the feather on the background with Versamark ink and added some clear embossing powder. After setting it with a heat gun I used the Abandoned Coral Distress ink to colour over it. I love the added texure you get from the watercolour card. I then stamped the Flamingo in the same ink and let it dry. I then gently pulled some of the ink out with a water brush to colour the image in. I again used the distress ink around the edges. I did my squiggly line with a black fineliner and matted the layers onto black card and glued in place. I used the same ink to colour the stamped flowers and Pine Needles to colour the foliage. I added some stamens into the centre of the flowers and glued in place and there you have it.
