Flamingo Reflection Card

I think this was my favourite of my samples from this month's TV shows (it changes between this and my other flamingo card).

I like the colours and I was really pleased at how the reflection turned out.

Like my Flamingo Anniversary Card, I used my Splodge Away mat to do the reflection. This time I wanted it to be paler than the main image, so I used black Adirondack ink on the Splodge mat for the reflection and then stamped the flamingo as I normally would.

I masked the flamingo then created the rest of the scene. I used an Ink Duster to do the water, trying to get a few lines in it to look like ripples. I made this heavier where her legs go into the water.

I coloured the flamingo in with ProMarkers and the reflection with pencils. The grass is done with Adirondack Lettuce and Meadow.

I found some brads and Bazzill Bling card in my stash that were a great match for the flamingo. I think they finish the card off nicely.

I'd like to enter it into the Dream Valley Challenge 57 - Animals.

Stamps Used



  1. Gorgeous - I need this stamp even though I am meant to be on a craft stash diet!! :-)

  2. Beautiful card, I have a splurge mat but it is still in the packaging. Must try and find a demo of the reflection technique and finally use it
