LIM week 275 - pastel colours

 Two cards using one stamp from me today. I've been hankering after this daisy from Indigo Blu for a while and the other day saw it in a store, so......here it is!

I've decided to use it for the current Less is More challenge which this week is pastels.

For the first card I stamped onto watercolour card and using inktense pencils water coloured the daisy and then sprinkled with some alcohol solution, cutting out the centre with a die and then mounting onto the stamped image this time with no colour. The sentiment is from Stampin up.

I also used the same technique on some stamping card, this time spraying with cosmic shimmer paint. Now I can't decide which one I like best!

I too have been hankering after this beautiful stamp and got my hands on it at the weekend. Now what do I do with it. You did a great job here, the bold image needs no more. :)

Both are gorgeous but I think the first one has the edge for me, the specked effect from the spray has made it look as if there are dozens of tiny water droplets like dew on the petals

Two gorgeous cards and so impossible to pick a favourite! I love that stamp and think you've used colour on it to brilliant effect in both versions. Fab work!

Omg! These are both amazing cards. What a terrific image and I how you have used the stamp. Amazing putting it on a different angle on each of the cards makes it look so different.

They are both Lovely Cards. I really like the colouring and layering of the first Card, looks great with the black and white background. I really like the simplicity look of the second Card.
