Fluffy Flamingo

Hello friends.  I'm so glad you could stop by.


I have another flamingo card to share with you.

This time I used the Color Layering Flamingo by Hero Arts.

I was impressed with how well the layers stamped and fit together.

I'd like to try more of a watercolor look but that will
have to wait until another day.

I had bought a bag of pink feathers thinking they'd be 
fun to use on flamingos.  This was about the smallest in the bag.

If I  make more, I'll have to find some smaller feathers.

Ms. Flamingo is going over to the challenge at



Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!
