LIM #279 Purple

I used a stamp by Creative Expressions to make this card and the sentiment is from SU. The stamp is a single flower multi part stamp, but I masked the first stamping and then used a couple more times, using the leaf to frame the flowers.

I used distress inks to stamp the image and then added some of the TH distress crayons. It's the first time I used the crayons, I only have one set as I wasn't sure if they would be for me. But, I absolutely love them so need to get the others now! You lay the colour down and then add water with a brush and they flow beautifully.

I'm entering this card into the current Less is More challenge for "purple". Purple is my fav colour and the hydrangea is one of my fav flowers so win win for me!

Lovely hydrangea stamp, and what a good idea to mask and use it repeatedly to create a bouquet feel! Great LIM card :)
