CAS Watercolour April 2018 & Seize the Birthday Bird

When I saw that this month's challenge was using a bird, I went oh no.  I don't do birds that well and only had some very small birds, but then I remembered this stamp set from Stamps of Life, Flamingo 2 Stamp and thought I would try and it took a few tries.
I used my Ziggies to watercolor the Flamingo and Distress Inks for the palms.
Then I saw that Seized the Birthday was the same theme so actually am able to enter into both challenges.


Thanks for stopping by.
