Today is Day 6 of our 2 Red Bananas Week of Peeks and we are showing off the Heartfelt Friends stamp set today. This set contains several heartfelt friends but I chose to use the flamingos because I have recently begun to love these pretty birds. And no, I don't have any in my yard yet! All stamp sets shown off this week on the Design Team blogs will be available at the online store Monday, February 2nd!
This was a fun layout! I bought the BasicGrey background paper a while back because I thought it was cute and loved the flamingos. Then I received the Heartfelt Friends set, I saw the flamingos stamp and thought it would look good with the paper. So here it is. I stamped the flamingos in brown and colored their bodies with a Sakura Stardust pen and accented with a white pen. I colored their beaks and legs with a clear glaze pen. The sticker letters are from October Afternoon. I used the Sakura Stardust pen again (I LOVE that pen) to go around the edges of the letters. For the transparency, I typed the definition of a flamingo, printed it out, ran some pink paint on the back side so it would show up better and adhered with double-sided tape. This set has several animals in it, so be sure to hop around to the other DT member blogs to see which animal they used!
Paper(s): BasicGrey Beloved, Paper Loft Fern, other BasicGrey scrap

If you are participating in today's BLOG HOP, you will need to go to each DT member's site, leave a comment and hop to the 2 Red Bananas blog and answer the question for the day. The question will be: Where do you 'hang out' to get inspiration - can you be found most often on SplitCoastStampers, PaperCraftPlanet, TwoPeasinaBucket, Blog hopping, or reading papercrafting magazines (if so, what is your favorite magazine)?
Remember to come back tomorrow to see projects posted with the last new set for this release! Thanks for joining in on the fun.
