Less is more Week 2 One Layer Challenge

This weeks challenge over at Less is More is to use a tree or flower image on a simple folded card.

I used a ribbed pearlescent card in a taupe colour and stamped a papermania stamp from an oriental collection in black brilliance ink. I used cool aqua and sky blue promarkers to add definition to the flower heads and tulip yellow for the leaves. The base colour muted the true colours and I quite liked the effect. The sentiment is a Jenny Mayes one and I drew a wiggley line to pop the image.
Thanks for looking :)
Mandi thanks for the font tutorial, definitely be having a go!
