Flamingo Acetate card

Good Morning everyone, i hope you enjoyed the weekend.

Today im sharing a flamingo acetate card i made for my other sister in laws birthday.

Approx size 5x5.  I bought this memory box splash die years ago after seeing cards i loved with it and then never could find a way to use it - so this is its first outing at long last! Thought it was perfect with my funky flamingo stamp.  I used a patterned paper for my insert so that it shows through the acetate and the cut out sections of the die. 

I stamped and coloured my flamingo with oxide inks and cut her out, adding glossy accents to her eyes and touches of glitter.  Die cut sun and stamped my little smile word. 

Showing it side on so you can see the acetate better, i just attached the insert at the top inside so that the light can show through the bottom of the acetate.  

Just a close up on the flamingo. 

Items Used:
Katzelkraft flamingo stamp
Memory box 'splashing puddle' die
MFT sun die
Hunkydory acetate
B&M paper pad 'ombre'
Twinkle stickles

Thank you all for stopping by and i hope you have a goodish week.  Hugs Emmax
