Simple but hard!!!!

Hi to you all.  I'm not and am happy with this card!!!  I am happy as I've never done this technique before where I inked up different colours on my stamp with adirondack ink and then spritz with water, stamped and heat set, I'm not happy because I'm not sure it looks right.  This could be purely because I've never done a one layered card which this card is for the challenge over on Less is More you also had to stamp off the edge.  The stamped nature which I added for the challenge over on Craft us Crazy is nature.  I'm not over happy that the stamped text is slightly wonky lol.  Oh well its great that we get to have a go at new things and it gets me out of doing the same thing all the time.
I can't believe that its my 3rd blog in 3 days, me thinks that my mojo is finally lurking near me!!! lol.  Hope you all had a great day and hopefully the weather near you tomorrow will be spring like.
OOPs meant to say that the stamps I used was paperartsy for the text, Sheena's new paint fusion for the bees and Elusive images for the flowers.
Bye for now.

Well done you for trying a new technique and pulling it off so well. Direct stamping can be quite scary, but you were obviously very brave!
Thanks for joining us and we hope to see you again next time!

Hi Kezzy. This a gorgeous card. Love the CAS style and the image and sentiment are beautiful. Lovely colours too. Donna

We all have stumbled with the new techniques we see everywhere but give it a cautious shot ourselves. But then....such is life! :)
Great job on the card! Looks lovely! Yayy!!

Hi Kezzy
I think it;s great! All I instantly thought as I read you weren't happy maybe if you;d left off the smaller stamped flowers, Or possibly have made one of the stems black to tie in the sentiment black. but, having said that there's nothing wrong with it, just an observation!
It;s really great you are joining us and doing something different
Hope o see you again

I like the effect you've achieved with stamping your flowers. They are very pretty. x

You say the text is "wonky" but with the way the sentiment is then it doesn't show. Your card is lush

This looks great to me. Spritzing your stamp with water is a tricky thing to get right and it looks brilliant.
