Peacock Flowers

I have a simple one layer card inspired by this week's Less is More's 'Peacock Feathers' colour challenge. I stamped some flowers from the 'Spring Flowers' set by Honey Doo Crafts just off the edge of one side of my card base, then watercoloured them using Distress Inks (Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Wild Honey & Spiced Marmalade). The sentiment stamp is from the 'Fabulous Birthday' set by Hero Arts.

This looks great, Helen! I love the clean lines and simplicity of it being one layer, but it's still got so much visual interest with the watercolouring and beautiful layout. Fab job - thanks so much for playing with us at Less is More :)

A really striking card Helen. Your crisp stamping is perfect and the water colouring is wonderful in that one layer design. A beautiful use of the challenge colours. Thank you so much for joining us at Less is More.
