Pink Flamingo

Hi all,

I started this card by stamping the Flamingo Palm Tree and coloring with Copic markers. It was layered on to pink card stock. I thought it needed more pink, so I used Brushable Glue and Semi-Trans Bubblegum pink glitter. Then on white card stock I used my finger to randomly spread Nuvo Embellish Mousse. Then I stamped the Wood Grain Background with Peacock Feather Distress Ink. I cut this into strips. On a piece of kraft card stock I used a Versa Mark along the edges then pink embossing powder. The wood strips were added over the top Then added Nuve Crystal Drops  (Neptune) along the edges. The Mousse was added to the edge of the card. The gauze was dyed with the Peacock Feather. I rubbed copper Embellish Mousse on to white card stock the stamped and black embossed the starfish from the 4 in 1 Seashells then fussy cut.

Have a wonderful day,
