So sorry

The current challenge on Less is More is to CASE (copy and share everything) the lovely inspiration card by Aileen (below).

I like having an inspiration card and find it gets me thinking about stamps I have which I may be able to use to CASE the card.  I remembered I had a lovely flower stamp from Technique Tuesdays which I felt would work.  I stamped the flower in distress ink and then painted it with various colours of distress ink.  I gave the background a light wash with antique linen distress ink to tone down the white card.  Finally I used a stitched die to cut out the image before mounting it on a watercolour card. 

Materials used:-
Watercolour card
Stamps - Technique Tuesday Agapanthus set
Distress inks - chipped sapphire, faded jeans, stormy sky, bundled sage, forest moss and antique linen
Archival ink - cobalt
Die - Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle stackable

Thanks very much for visiting my blog - I really appreciate your comments.  Now pop over to the Less is More blog to see how the other participants have been inspired by Aileen's card.  Margaret
