It's time for the My Grafico Challenge again, which I found quite a tough one to work with :). We are using a very cute set of flamingos having holiday fun at the beach and the theme is retirement! Hmm... I've also made my card to a recipe for this week's Simon Says Challenge, which is is a 3-2-1 with 3 embellishments, 2 papers and 1 image.
Image coloured with Copics, yellow Stickles added to the hat and necklace. The background was painted from a Stonewashed Adirondack ink pad. The image was cut out using Rach's out of the frame technique and mounted onto golden sand coloured Bazzill card. The two papers came from a huge K& Co box that I got when I went to Graphicus. The ribbon is from stash and the 2 flowers are Prima from a pack I chose when I was lucky enough to win the Simon Says challenge in July. I thought I had a Happy Retirement stamp somewhere from an assortment of stamps I bought on Ebay but I couldn't find it, so I opted for an Elusive Images sentiment: "Enjoy Yourself" which fits the theme but could also work for other occasions too. The colour scheme is meant to be hot and sunny, hope you like it!
