Growth ........



Still gorgeous weather here today, will be going out for some lunch later to make the most of it whilst it lasts.  Hope you are all enjoying the weather too !

 This clean & simple card was made with a 4.5 x4.5 inch white card blank.  I have used swooshes of inks in yellow, blue and lime green applied direct from the pads as a base.






I then used some inchie stamps of flowers which were lined up and inked with Archival black ink.  These were stamped over the colours.





The card was finished with a sentiment from PaperArtsy stamped again in Archival black.

This card fits the bill for entry into the Less is More challenge blog for week 182 whose theme is 'Anything Goes'.
