Fun Flamingo

Here is today's CAS creation:

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4," and the fold is at the top.  I used white card stock for the base, then rounded the corners with a 1/4" corner rounder.

The flamingo is a Peachy Keen stamp, from the April 2014 Stamp of the Month kit.  I paper pieced it, then added some shading with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.  I also colored the eye with blue and white gel pen, then covered it in glossy accents.

The puddle in which the flamingo is standing was cut with the Silhouette Cameo.  It is from the cut file "crane bird," by Sarah Bailey (#45710).  I used just the water from that cut.  I gave it some detail/shading with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, also by Tim Holtz, then covered it in glossy accents.

The sentiment is also from the April 2014 Stamp of the Month kit by Peachy Keen.

I made this for the following challenges: 

CASology: cue word - "wet"

Die Cuttin' Divas: pastel colors
