Less Is More - off centre a second attempt

This is something I've wanted to try for a while and I think it fits this week's LIM Challenge perfectly - hope the LIM ladies think so too:).   I've used my Hobby Art stamps and watercolours to make a Spring landscape with lambs growing in the field and I've extended the scene into the white space around it.  The card for the white space is from the back of a card I messed up, so it is exactly the same as the card.  I've matted both onto black and decided to leave the sentiment off in case it ends up too busy.

My card is for the following challenges:
Less Is More - off centre
Crafty Creations - white space
Party Time Tuesday - anything goes
Corrosive Challenges - use animals
Sparkles Forum - anything goes

  1. Great bit of Spotlighting Anne and without a sentiment is could be a multipurpose card!
    Super job!

  3. Gorgeous card Anne, reminds me of Angelsey where I've spent many a happy holiday :o). I love the way your design continues across the card in black and white. Looks fab.

    These Hobby Art stamps work so well with watercolours, give such a good result. I've just bought the In The Country set, I think they're going to turn into another addiction. I can feel another stash diet coming on!!

    Have a lovely day.

  20. A beautiful card Anne. you have done so well making a scene. I've a different set of the Hobby Art stamps and I can't get on with them. I haven't produced anything yet. I'm not into the masking technique.
