First step was to place small lengths of tape to plain vellum before cutting each individual strip and then punching one end with a rounded corner punch. Next step was to overlap and adhere each strip to the wing of the flamingo before gently bending each tip around a pen to create the dimension.
This gorgeous flamingo is from the Doodlebug - Fun In the Sun cut file collection which you can find at the links below. However I did alter the file a little as I wanted to put the title of my layout 'Flamingo' down the shape of the neck.

Shaped Sprinkles (eye candy) in this year's Booville collection. I kid you not!
I didn't hold back in mixing and matching collections on this layout with a combination of Spring Things, Booville, Fun In the Sun, Milk & Cookies plus a touch of Petite Prints card stock. I will always find room on my layouts for anything transparent like these sweet clouds and sun from the Spring Things Odds & Ends pack.
