1. A flexible lighting element, comprising:
a flexible channel having a bottom and side walls, the flexible channel being an elongate channel:
a light emitting diode module disposed on the bottom of the elongate channel, the light emitting diode module including a flexible printed circuit board,
a housing coupled to the flexible printed circuit board and having a cavity, and
light emitting diodes mounted in the cavity,
a first encapsulant surrounding the light emitting diode and filling the cavity and a first group of embedded phosphor particles; and a second encapsulant surrounding light emitting diode module and filling the channel to a level sufficient to encapsulate the light emitting diodes,
wherein the light emitting diode module emits a calibrated light which offsets a color shift caused by the second encapsulant, wherein the flexible printed circuit board includes a single-layer copper trace to which a corresponding light emitting diode is coupled.
