Oddball Flamingo!


Two of my favorites, Oddballs and Flamingoes.


I do love the Oddballs. I don’t know why, but I just DO! I’ve always loved flamingoes also. But even more now that it is the mascot of the community we live in. For this flamingo I paper pieced, and hot foiled! So, on with the show and tell…


I paper pieced the body of the flamingo, and colored his feet, eyelid and beak with my Copic markers.


For the background I used my new Glimmer club kit for July! I used the teal foil, which (SORRY) photographs nothing what it looks like!


Check out my hot foil plate, I accidentally placed my foil wrong side down. It in NO way affects the plate if you happen to be not paying attention like I did!

I love this! I’m going to check out the Glimmer Club. I love that background. Of course I love that flamingo too! I will have to look through my stamps as I believe I have that one. Thanks for sharing!

He’s great! So much expression!!! I wondered how you colored his body then read that you paper-pieced. Even I can do that! I couldn’t imagine coloring it like that if that is what you had done 🙂 Fun card!
