Purple Colour Block Flowers

I have another quick one layer card to share today...should really be working, but couldn't resist making another couple of cards to try and help Less Is More reach 1000 entries this week! I mixed a few Distress Inks on an acrylic block (Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord & Chipped Saphire), then spritzed it with a little water before stamping it on to my card blank (A6 sized for a change). I stamped the flower stamp ('Agapanthus Clusters' by Stampendous) over the top using black Versafine. I made another card using the same technique...but with different colours and image stamp...but I'm saving that one for tomorrow.
