Oddball Flamingo!

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!

With One Scoop

With One Scoop

Can I just say I LOVE Mini Oddballs just as much as the originals!


I have not colored up a Stamping Bella in a while. I have been busily working on Design Team projects. But I am HAPPY to say I am quite a bit ahead at the moment, so I get to color whatever I want for the next week or so! Good thing, because my “new” stamp bin is getting a bit full! SO, on with the show and tell…


I used the “rag technique” with some denim to give my oddball a denim jumper. I paired that with some sparkly purple boots and bow!


This is such a fun sentiment. I love the combination of fonts.


My green eyed mini oddball paired well with all the texture and dimension of two patterned papers and some dry embossing!
