Less Is More - Week #3

You know what, I'm really enjoying these Clean and Simple cards since discovering the new challenge blog "Less Is More".  I have entered each challenge up to now and whilst my cards may not be the best it is giving me a new challenge and I'm loving it.  So onto week 3 of their challenge and this week is theme week and the theme is Spring.  Nothing says Spring to me than a lovely bunch of flowers in a vase - brings the outside inside - if you know what I mean.
So here is the card I made:
I printed the image directly onto the card this time and then coloured it in with Distress Inks and my Water Brush. 
The sentiment at the top was done on the computer but I'm not entirely happy with it really - just doesn't look like I wanted it to.  Still I guess practice makes perfect don't it?
The image was one I have had on my computer for ages and is from Sketchin Stamper (can't find a link for it - sorry).  I just think anyone would love a lovely vase of fresh flowers like this on their table - I know I would.  I hope you like my card - it would be nice to get some feedback so leave me some love before you go!

  1. Hi Dawn,
    It's great to see you again with another lovely submission! I love Chris Dark's images and this is a sweetie.
    I've really been enjoying painting with Distress inks... my current batch of card doesn't take kindly to Copics or Promarkers.
    Your vase looks fab... always difficult to colour clear glass!
    I quite enjoyed reading your rant on our blog and totally agree!!!!
    See you next week

  4. It`s a super card. Love the vase of flowers. I`m not in position to critisise anyone but maybe the sentiment could be slightly lower. It`s a lovely sentiment though.
