Less is More - use 3 stamps

Remember when images were not usually coloured, before we all got Copics?  I had a go at a non-coloured card for this week's Less is More challenge, but ended up adding some colour with Distress Inks!  All three stamps are from a now retired Stampin' Up set which I love.  The single layer cardstock didn't like watercolouring but after three earlier attempts hit the bin I am sticking with this version :).
I'm also entering the St Luke's Challenge for this month which is one layer.

  17. I love the effect of your watercolouring Anne and the combined images are great! I watercolour on smooth surface card stock sometimes - it works fine but you have to remember to do it really quickly! Vicky x

  24. Such a great card Anne - I've got this stamp set but never thought of using them together but the way you've done it makes it look like the parents looking over to their child making sandcastles......inspired.
