Flamingo card

Good morning friends, it's a lovely warm
and sunny day here today. I hope you all
have it too.
 
 
Late with my Saturday 'Less is More' card
as our son asked us to join them for a nice
pub lunch and walk yesterday.Their  baby is
 due any minute of course.
 
 
 My DIL looks  amazing too. I suggested
 names which they liked, no decision yet 
though ;) Next Friday is the day she will
arrive , unless it happens naturally before
 then. She is breech atm. too still.
 
 
 
Such a  lovely day, anyway I have made my
 card at  last! It's a colour challenge this 
week and....
 
 
SUNSET
 
 
Of course sunset said pink to me lol. Well
it would of course and everyone who knows 
me won't be at all suprised !
 
 
 
I went for an Ombre look, pale shades of the 
setting sun....well that's what it said to me
anyway.
 
 
 
 I wanted a watercolour look to my
flamingo and tried my new Zig Clean color
real brush pens. (HAD to get those when I saw
them whilst blog hopping).....yes I know not
easy on  the purse this blog hopping is it!!!
 
 
 
After much effort ( several coloured images) and
 trying various mediums I  relented and had to use 
my trusty Copic pens. The printed image didn't
 like watercolour of  course. 
 
 
 
Loving the new pens though so you will be seeing 
more of them very soon. Sooo hard to open though,
 my poor nails haven't  recovered yet...and I have 
only opened 3 so far!!
 
 
Enough waffling from me again,come and have a 
closer look ;) here is my card....
