Less is More–Pick a Square

This week at Less is More the challenge is to make a card placing your design in only 1 of the 5 squares in the sketch.

Here is my card;

002

 

                                                                                                                                     005

I used my lovely Ruffled Bloom stamp again which I stamped with Adirondack Watermelon Ink. I used a fine wet brush to drag the ink and colour the image. I added tiny dots of Glamour Dust to the centre of the flower and then mounted the image onto dark and lighter shades of pink card.

Thank you for the lovely comments on last weeks card – they are much appreciated.
