This is a really quick post tonight to link a card up to the latest theme challenge at Less is More which is Watercolour. This is something I've not used on cards previously but I wanted to give it a go and made this quick card last night.
I started by stamping the flowers with Memento Ink, using the little teardrop pads which are good for inking up the detail, onto some watercolour paper. I then squished a little of the ink from each pad onto an acrylic block and used a waterbrush to colour in the blooms. I then cut this out using a tag die before adding the sentiment. I used some co-ordinating embossed pink cardstock and cut out a second tag, and these were then adhered together at an angle before adding the twine. I was going to just adhere these to the card base on their own but they looked a little lost so I stamped the horizontal stripes to add a little interest in the background.

Sorry for the super quick post, I'm off out for a bite to eat as there's no World Cup footie tonight so the BF can be dragged away from the TV! :)
Hope to see you again over the weekend.
