Stamp with Sarah Kay & OCC sketch challenges

I'm not at all happy with this one. I chose the wrong backing paper (not blue enough), I stamped the image in grey Stazon thinking it would give the image a more ethereal look (should have used black) and I didn't find this image the easiest to colour (it's new to me - I think I need more practise with this one).
Other than all that - it's OK. I used the
OCC sketch and Stamp with Sarah Kay challenge of blue and brown.
The image is coloured with watercolours and prismas. There is no sentiment as yet as being in a 'wishy washy' mood I couldn't make my mind up what to put. I think my mojo's gone walkabouts again.

I think sometimes we are too critical of ourselves Rica - your cards are always ones to be proud of. I know how you feel though as I have done quite a few lately that I felt weren't quite right - maybe my mojo has gone walkabout with yours!!

Hope you have had a brilliant weekend - and heating is totally fixed now.
