* Tickled Pink & So Sweet! *

Written on Monday, August 7th, 2017

   Welcome to Day 3 of the Craftin’ Desert Divas August Release! Tara let me share over on the CDD blog today! Plus, today, the divas are sharing their creations using Tickled Pink, an adorable set that will make flamingo lovers squeal!
    The new August release will be available for purchase in the Craftin’ Desert Divas store on August 9 at noon EST.

   This little flamingo is SO adorable! I love that they’re sharing the pineapple drink! I decided that it would look best if it appeared they were taking a break from building a sand castle and playing ball to cool off.
   To make my scene, I used Watercolor paper as my background. Then I masked off the area I wanted to for the sand. I used Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide ink. I also went over with my Copic airbrush set with E55 and E53 and used the super brush nib in the machine to make the splatters. Then I masked the sky area off and used Broken China and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink to make the ocean. Finally, I masked off the lower portion of the scene and airbrushed BG11 to make my sky.
   To make my frame, I used the largest rectangle from the new Inside Rectangle dies and cut 1/8″ from the stitching so that it was a less feminine frame. Then I doubled up on the foam tape to give it some dimension.

   To make my images look a little more like they’re part of the scene, I used my craft knife to make slits in the background and slid part of them through. I also went around the white area and colored it to match the scene.
   For a finishing touch, I added Glossy Accents to the beach ball and the flamingo’s eye.

   I do hope you like my card and please remember to come join us at the CDD August Release Event.
