Less is More week 177-theme

Help I'm on a roll, 3 posts in 3 days, I think I may have sunstroke!!
Well it's Saturday and time for a new Less is More challenge and this is what the team want:
Our challenge is to use

It doesn't have to be a complete work of art (although we know that many will be just that), but if you could  include water when adding colour to your project that would be wonderful.
There are many watercolour stamps around, where colour is added directly to the stamp  rather than adding colour to an outline image. Distress Inks can be used, watercolour pencils, background washes whatever your imagination dictates.
Please remember to keep it CLEAN & SIMPLE and don't forget that

I have used a Jenny Mayes sketchy stamp, stamped with grey Versafine and watercoloured with DI's. I stamped a strip of card with the grey ink and left it without colour. The sentiment is an old SeeDee one and the topper was diecut with a spellbinders die.
I have another stamp ready to use so I may be back sooner than you think!!
I've had a very relaxing day swinging on the garden sofa reading my book:)

Sounds like you had a wonderfully relaxed day Val, just popping in to make this lovely card! So pretty stamped in grey and then watercoloured with soft colours. We've been digging out concrete blocks! Hot the duck races tomorrow so more cooking!

I have that pretty stamp and it always makes a lovely card - yours is great with the watercolour effect. I like the clever idea with the stamped border strip too. Must check out my collection of SeeDee stamps as well - not seen the light of day for ages!!
