Addicted to Stamps Challenge #129 - Clean and Simple

Hi there - Over at Addicted to Stamps & More this week the theme for our challenge is 'Clean and simple' and it's my favourite week of course!

 For my card today I have used a gorgeous daisy stamp by stamplorations which I embossed with white embossing powder before trying my hand at some watercolouring. I am certainly no expert but it's fun and quite relaxing to do and I love the soft results that you can achieve with watercolours.

Karen, this is one of the most gorgeous showcases of this image that I've ever seen. In fact, I'm so smitten with your creation that I'm 'this close' to trying my own version, even though I haven't dabbled with my distress inks for quite a while (apparently our 'on again, off again relationship is in off mode). Love your card...LOVE!
Hugs~c
