Flamingo and sketch

Hello there. As I am working tomorrow, and England has another football game tomorrow evening, I don’t think I’ll have time to craft – you never know. Here is a card I made to enter two challenges:

I took my Distress Oxides and ink smooshed and water-coloured a piece of water-colour card. I wanted to have colours which wouldn’t over-power the flamingo pink, nor the vibrant green of the palm trees.

I took the sketch inspiration from CAS(E) This Sketch and die cut the banner/tag using a Catherine Pooler die, took the flamingo and trees from W Plus 9 ‘Flock Yeah‘, water-coloured them with my zigs, and arranged as you see.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Here is another version:

I have mentioned before that I struggle with clean and simple cards, but I really think I’m growing in that department. I think the key is to take inspiration from other card makers and challenges – I still like to make a card that is ‘full-on’ – but am actually enjoying my clean and simple journey.

I shall be entering the following challenges:
