Watercolour Daisies

I decided to try another CAS card today, I really enjoy making these for a change sometimes.

I stamped the Stampendous Daisy Stem Trio image onto watercolour card stock and added a touch of colour with Lyra Aquacolor Crayons and a waterbrush.  I then mounted the image onto some yellow card stock from my scrap box and punched the edges with an X-Cut border punch.

The card base has been made from some more watercolour card stock and a simple stamped sentiment from the same set added - I told you it was CAS and it certainly is - I haven't even decorated this inside, but that could change!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Paper Playtime Challenge 84 - Punches + a Sentiment
The Pink Elephant Challenge 166 - Monochromatic
Challenges 4 Everybody Challenge 3 - Anything Goes
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 181 - LESS Is More!
