inky paws challenge - one layer

it happened!
the dreaded...ONE LAYER challenge finally came to the Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge! I knew it was only a matter of time...ha ha ha! :)

i have SUCH a hard time with one layer cards! but i see other people's and i'm blown away! it's a battle for me, for sure! lol!

anyway, i did manage to create a card for this one layer challenge - and naturally, i used a tiny bit of watercoloring!

what do you think?
i used the CUTE flamingos from Flirty Flamingos! i love those little guys!

i stamped them onto my card front, then added just a TINY bit of watercoloring with Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick distress inks! since it was one layer, i decided they could be two different kinds of pinks!
i created lots of leakage with the watercolor, then flicked lots of drops of color over the card base, too.

the sentiment was stamped with 2nd generation memento black ink all over the background of the card!

so what's your Achilles heel when it comes to card making? clearly - it's currently one layer cards for me! :)
but i hope you play along - please inspire me with your awesome one layers!! :D
