Shades of Pumice Stone

After yesterday's highly saturated coloured cards, I've toned it down today for Less Is More's 'Neutrals' challenge. I stamped 'Agapanthus Clusters' (by Stampendous) in 'Pumice Stone' Distress Ink, then 'coloured in' the outline flowers with more 'Pumice Stone' using my waterbrush. For the strip along the bottom, I lightly blended a little 'Pumice Stone' on to white card, then stamped my 'Circular Design' background stamp (by Penny Black) in...yes, you've guessed it...'Pumice Stone'. The sentiment stamp (from a little Wild Rose Studio set) was stamped in Memento 'Rich Cocoa'...just for a change...and the button twine (just seen...it doesn't contrast too well against the stamping) is from the Ribbon Girls.
