Pink Ladies April Challenge @ More Than Words

This month at More Than Words we have another one of our fun challenges for you. This month it's about Nature/Animals. This was my interpretation of the challenge.
And this is the challenge board.
When I think of nature I always think of exotic animals. One of my favoritess is actually a bird! The flamingo is a stunning creature. Long legs, long graceful neck, and their coloring makes them truly sublime creatures.
 I started by using a stencil and a variety of Lindy's mists to lay down a green background. I then added some drywall tape for extra texture. I used Gabi's 6 by 6 Mini Moving Vines stencil and some molding paste to add some texture that would mimic the trees hanging down in the photo. I used Art Alchemy paints and colored the vines to match my photo. I then did some stamping randomly all around my background.

I used some Blue Fern chipboard to surround my photo to bring in the dark element of the fence seen in the photo. The flower cluster is made up of a lilly from Blue Fern Studios and the rest are from 49 & Market. A little colored cheesecloth adds a extra element of texture for fun.
Kitty corner is another flower cluster to add balance to my page. Here you can see both the background and chipboard in more detail. I also used some of Finn's melanges on this page. I love the magnifying effect they give off!

My title was done with American Craft Thickers colored with Cotton Candy mist from Lindy's Stamp Gang. You can see if you look closely the tiny pink seedlings in the corners of my chipboard. I also added some random dots of pink bling across the page.
My last close-up is of my background showing some heat embossing I did as well as one of the melanges I used. This was a bit of a challenge for me as I do not have much experience in scrapping animals! I am so used to scrapping people. Time to get out of my comfort zone!!

Well that's it for now! Hope to see you soon!
All the best! :)
