Flamin Go

Apparently when flamingo’s start their courtship the male of the species has to win it’s mate by performing a dance and when she is suitable impressed she gives in to his charming light-footedness and they become mates for life, this then excites others around them so much so that they copy his dance to celebrate. amazing huh!

Meet Ollie and Olga by Karen’s Doodles I could have gone two ways with this stamp Ostrich or flamingo but when i checked out their courtship habits I knew which i had to do.


It’s kind of funny because in my own courtship Chris was known for trying to impress me at the disco with a kind of turkey strut Oooo the memories.


I think you’ll agree that this couple seem very tied up in each other.

Colours – Copic salmon and lemon shades

Papers – Papertrey Ink

Letter – Thickers
