Less is More - Week 4!

I can't believe that I have actually made a card for each of the challenges at Less Is More - but I am loving them and look forward each week to the next one.  So for week 4 the challenge is called "Three Squares" and here is the card I made for this challenge:
I used three different sized squares to accommodate the three different stamp sizes that I used.  These stamps are from one of Joanna Sheen's Favourite Flowers collection called Garden Flowers.
I have coloured everything using my watercolour pencils and a paintbrush - took a while but I think it was worth it.
I added a narrow purple ribbon to the right hand side and put a birthday greeting bottom right.  This was a freebie stamp which is actually all in one line I just inked each word up separately so that it would fit in the space I had.

I'm really pleased with how this turned out and I hope you all like it too.  Why not have a go yourself - you might surprise yourself!

  5. Watercolor pencils? Hmmm. It is so beautiful. I like how you balanced out the design with the ribbon. I looked at the enlarged pictures and you've inspired me to get out my w.c. pencils which I rarely use. Thank you so much.
