I am still creating cards but life is busy right now. Family comes first so that does keep me going. I have created this card and decided to add it to some challenges this week. The stamp is from Stupendous called what else Flamingo.
The card base is 5 x 7 ready made White cs. I Then cut a layer 4.5 x 6.5 and stamped the background with SU botanical blooms using old olive ink. I then cut a mellon mombo shape using a die from SU. I used an embossing folder on the layer and for the image I also used the next smallest shape after I colored the image. To color I used stampin' up markers mellon mombo, peach parfait and blushing bride for the flamingo. The water was soft sky, and the foliage is old olive and pear pzazz. I added a small dragon fly from an older set (2007) from Crafty Secrets. The feathers were stamped using ART-C No name on the package so they are just feathers. I added two gold banners at the top, a melon mombo bow and glittered the feathers and wings. I love painting birds of all kinds so when I seen this stamp I had to buy it. I will add this card into these challenges,
