Life is a BEACH!

Hi there and Welcome to today's post for the 
CAS Watercolour Challenge to feature Birds

I was looking for something a little different
for my second card for this challenge and remembered 
I had a couple of flamingo sets.
I started by inking a craft mat with
Tim's Spun Sugar spritzing with water 
and smooching, then the brighter colours of
Evergreen Bough and peacock Feathers.
Stamped the palm tree and sentiment also in the
Evergreen Bough. 
The palm trees always have coconuts 
so added a few with Gold Liquid Pearls
and a few fell on the ground.
My 'Fashion Conscious'  Flamingo is from
 Inkadankdo's Flamingo fun 
inked with Altenew Red Cosmos colours, 
 heat embossed in white, fussy cut and popped.
Added a touch of colour to match the coconuts
with a scallop die from MFT.

My Mix is Water Colouring, Embossing, 
Stamping and Die Cutting.
Hope you like my Fun Flamingo
and to my overseas friends I hope
your weather warms up and you can 
get to paddle your feet at the Beach soon.

Thanks for dropping in
