For our "at the ocean" challenge today....In a panel that was the same size as my card front I die cut a rectangle and then created the bg scene with masking, stamping, and sponging (using all Distress oxide inks, except the green, which was mowed lawn). Sponging with the oxide inks is sooooooo smooth - love it! Splattered with water droplets, absorbed ink with a paper towel gently pressed into panel, and then spritzed with shimmer spritz spray- SO sparkly!! Inserted this panel back into the negative space and attached to card front.
Stamped the sentiment with 2 colors, triple stamped the flamingo, die cut and popped up with dimensional tape. Added sparkly enamel dots - I love this brand (Your Next Stamp) - they are so sparkly! Did I mention that I like shimmer and sparkle????

Maura your background panel is stunning - it adds so much interest to your CAS card and really brings your flamingo to centre stage. Just gorgeous! A fun sentiment too. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!
