Sunset Flamingo

This card is entered into the Crazy Crafters Team Highlights this week.  To view all the amazing projects and vote for your favourites, click here.

A week or so ago, I used up some stray Melon Mambo and Pacific Point ink on my craft mat by spritzing with water and smooshing some pieces of Glossy Cardstock into the resulting puddle.  This is one of those pieces.  It was probably my favourite one because of the pink cloud.

To finish the card, this is what I did:
  • Stamped the water swirl with Pacific Point ink
    Using Elegant Eggplant ink and two of the three stamps for the flamingo body (I didn't use the plain one)
  • Masked one of the feet and stamped the legs with Elegant Eggplant (both stamps)
  • Watercoloured a little Whisper White Craft ink in the top part of the "water"
  • Stamped the tall grass with Elegant Eggplant ink
  • Watercoloured a little Melon Mambo ink into the Flamingo body
  • Sponged some Elegant Eggplant ink onto the bottom of the piece
  • White heat embossed the greeting from Blooms & Wishes onto Basic Gray cardstock, cut it out with one of the Leaflets framelits dies, trimmed it to fit onto the side of the card and sponged the edges with Elegant Eggplant ink
  • Cut some more foliage with an Eclectic Layers Thinlit die from Smoky Slate cardstock and sponged the edges with Basic Gray ink.
  • Adhered the leaves to the card with Mini Glue Dotes and added a Glitter Enamel Dot
