Fabulous Flamingo Reveal Wheel


Hi everyone, 
I finally had a go using the reveal wheel die I bought a long time ago. Along with a flamingo stamp set, also long neglected!

Luckily there are you tube videos on putting the interactive parts together, so I just had to decide on my scene and stamp the sentiments on the wheel.

I stamped the flamingoes and clear embossed them, then used a grass and cloud stencil from MFT with distress inks to create the background.

I stamped another trio of flamingos on some scrap cardstock, coloured them with my chameleon alcohol markers and tried adding some shading with my Prismacolor pencils, (bit hard to see the shading I know!)
Then I fussy cut the bodies and paper pieced them over the flamingoes stamped on the background.

The sentiment die was inked with versamark and embossed with black sparkle powder.
The stamped sentiments are from the reveal wheel sentiment set.

This was a fun card to make, so I might have a go at some more!

I'm linking up to these challenges...

Stencil Fun, without the option of flowers.

Playing with never before used stuff means I can pop into Darnell's NBUS Challenge

Fab n Funky, things with wings

Playing along with the left hand column - birthday, diecut, pens/pencils.
(The flamingoes are from Picket Fence Studios That's Flocking Great from around 2019 and the wheel sentiments are from Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel sentiments 2017.)

This is a fun and pretty interactive card Cathy and I think the flamingos are so cute, and the stencilled clouds and grass make a wonderful background. I am curious as to whether there is more than the one word on the wheel. x

Cathy said...

Hi Pat, yes there are 4 sentiments - fabulous, terrific, awesome and amazing :)
