Festive Flamingos–MFT’s October Card Kit Countdown Day One


Hi, everyone, are you ready for a new MFT Card Kit? Today is Day One Countdown for the October Kit, Festive Flamingos and it is awesome!!! Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for all the details and for more Design Team samples using this kit.


I literally squealed when I saw this flamingo set!!! I especially love this one with the lights so I used it first. I found a watercolor background in my stash that was perfect and I added some elements from Beach Scene Builder Die-namics to bring it to life and added the sentiment at the bottom.


The image was stamped on No Line Coloring Card Stock with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink, cut it out with the coordinating Die-namics and colored it with Copic markers and I added some highlights with a white pencil.

And that’s it from me for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Two of MFT’s October Card Kit, Festive Flamingos!
