Tri-tails, Tri-Colors, Tri-Challenge

I made this card for three challenges, The Paper Players challenge (which I missed), and the
CAS-ual Fridays challenge, and the Just Add Ink weekly challenge. This might seem simple, but really, it was not simple.
I started with a base of Wild Wasabi, added a layer of Certainly Celery. Then in upper corner, I add a ripped piece of Wild Wasabi DSP. I mean, technically, it is a bit of a different color for the trio of colors. On this one on the left, I sponged the edges in Early Espresso and used my spritzing tool to spray some flecks of espresso.
Then, I stamped the cat tail and the whale tail on the celery in black. I stamped the alligator head on watercolor paper, then I stamped his tail on watercolor paper, and I colored both in using my watercolor pen and celery and wasabi ink. Then I had to cut each out, and I popped them up using my stampin' dimensionals, of course!
I added my sentiment on watercolor paper, too. I used the word window to punch it out. Then I used the modern label punch and more wasabi DSP.
