Meet Fred!

When I saw this stamp I knew I had to have it - I had NO idea what I would ever use him for but Flamingo Fred just stole my heart :-)

I decided to stamp him onto some kraft cardstock and colour with pencils - just a couple of shades of pinks and purples and then put him to one side until I needed him.  When I saw the colours at this weeks CR84FN, I thought they would be great to match with Fred, so I matted him onto some light and dark plum, added an embossed layer of craft and some stars.  The sentiments are made up from different sets - one from a party invite, the other from a random word set.  The reeds are from there she goes.  Finished with a little bow - now who could resist those comic eyebrows???

I am entering Fred into the following challenges - a couple requiring you to use kraft cardstock, and then the CR84FN colour challenge:
