Retro Lustre waves: myGrafico Floating Flamingo box

This was such a fun image to play with!

Quick link for the Paper Temptress Paper: Retro Silver Lustre (with built-in waves!)
Martha (of myGrafico fame) kindly asked me to play along with their challenges this month.
This week, the challenge was to use the playful images from the Funky Summer Flamingo set by Jehanne.
The theme was retirement…
myGrafico retirement flamingo box (melstampz) 600ishPX
This is what I’d like to do when I retire (in between paper crafting, of course!)

The Funky Flamingo image is printed, paper pieced, & coloured with copic markers.

The water was really easy to make. The shimmery paper behind the image is from Paper Temptress & it did all the work.

It’s called Retro Silver Lustre & it has the waves built in. ;o)
I tinted the waves with Copic markers & adhered the works to a very simple rectangular box.

The sign is stuck on a bamboo skewer &
into the water on the front of the box.

To get the embossed retirement text (customizable by typing it in any text document)…I just brushed some matte medium onto  Neenah White cardstock, printed the typewriter text, & heat embossed it in clear embossing powder.  Then, distressed it with ink speckles.

Thanks so much for checkin this out! :o)

  • At the cheaper end of the scale there are photo calendars.
    The choice of design is yours so you can make it look
    exactly how you want it to. You decide that this
    time you’re going to look for unique Valentines gifts.

  • Proper analysis of the status of the relationship would lead the man in identifying the best ideas for
    Valentines Day for her. Remember, many men are, in the beginning,
    not comfortable expressing romance. Work, children, hobbies, social life and frienxs secretly swallow
    a lot of time.
