Flamingo on the Beach

Over at Catch the Bug we have a new challenge for you and this week it's a COLOR CHALLENGE! Enter and you are in the chance of winning images from the Bugaboo store.

I colored my image using Promarkers and a white gel pen. I stamped the sentiment with dark blue ink.

The frame is made using a Dienamics die, the waves, seashells, starfish and sand dollar are Memory Box die cuts.

I used a little bit of mist on the white background, but it doesn's show well on the photo, and I also added a piece of cheese cloth.
I mounted the panel on foam onto a white card case and used a rounded corner punch on one corner.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Fussy and Fancy - #144 Things with Wings
2) Aud Sentiments Challenge - #136 Anything Goes with a sentiment
3) Crafting By Designs - Summer Holidays
4) The Corrosive Challenges - #229 To "Die" For
5) Crafty Cardmakers - Water

Another fun card with this cute flamingo and the arrow "for the beach", Pia! !! You are so talentd with fun cards, I am not able to do them. Love how you made the seaside scene, with the waves and the sand. And you add lovely details with seashell, starfish and the cheesecloth that give a pretty touch of lightness.
I wish you a happy weekend!

Another awesomely funny & cute card. (Our DD dislikes flamingos - leftover from So. Fla childhood - we frequently find the theme for cute cards for this one is just delightful!) I love the layout, and again with the dark curly waves as Miss Flamingo heads for the sand & sea with all her beach accutrements. How fun. TFS & have a great wkend
