Flamingo Party

It has been Dare to Get Dirty Challenge Week at Splitcoaststampers which equals a busy time for Dirty Girls. I am blessed to be part of this fantastic group of artists. In the next couple of days I will share some of the cards I did for the challenges. Meet "Flamingo Party". I can't give away the details of the challenge, but I can share a bit about my card. I die cut my Flamingo out of watercolour paper. I put down some Tim Holtz Distress Inks Picked Raspberry on my craft mat and spritzed with water, then dragged my flamingo through it. I added more ink with a paint brush. I did the same for the green background, first embossing then dragging through Tim Holtz Distress Twisted Citron, and I must say I love this colour. My back panel is embossed with my flamingo embossing folder and my green panel is attached on foam strips. And, to finish I added the "Enjoy" sentiment and a few sequins - even Flamingo's like sequins. It worked, one of the comments on this card over at Splitcoast was a request for my Flamingo to come over and play with "her" Flamingo!  Hope you like her. Thank you for having a peek.

Hi Kia. What a gorgeous colour combination. I am definitely trying this!! I LOVE your flamingo ... she is so pretty. Love the embossed background too. This would be perfect for the CAS Mix Up this month (I know you've already entered ... but why not enter this as well??!!). xx
