A pair of flamingoes

Freshly made sketches have this sketch 
I made this card
I used a single flamingo pattern. First I pricked the right hand bird and then very carefully I inverted the pattern, held it up to the light to match the flamingos and then I pricked the second one. I joined the water so that it made a circle in the middle.
