Pink Flamingo for the Clearly Inspired Challenge




Hello, I would say good morning but I guess I'm getting my post in a little late for that! I was up a little late getting this done and it's taking me awhile to get around today, how many of you have done that?! LOL! I had a nap with the little ones after getting the oldest to school. This is my sample card for this weeks Clearly Inspired Challenge. This week is a sketch, remember every entry is put in the drawing for a stamp set of your choice! If you decide to play please use keywords
CIC5.I decided to use this cute new stamp from a set called Critter Tales designed by Laurie Wilson, she does come up with some of the cutest critters. This set of 11 is just adorable and is great for any occasion! The narrow panel in the back was made to match my bg paper by embossing the leaves with a cb folder, alot of sponged layers and I added the tiny flowers with aa set called Sassy Scallops also from CDS. The Flamingo is stamped and embossed on watercolor paper and watercolored using my SU markers. The leaves that frame out the oval I handmade on watercolor paper and used a gorgeous Prima daisy in the center given to me a while back by Priscilla while I was still on the MMSC DT.
