Less is More Week 172 - Flowers

 This week has a simple and fun theme of flowers and I'm sure we'll see lots of super entries.  First card is paper pieced from Basic Grey Wisteria, I have just a few sheets left.   The doodled border is Distress Ink pen, sentiment is Waltzing Mouse.  I made a version of this earlier this week, which ended up rather more than less!
 This is very simple, there is no sentiment as that way I can add one when I need it.  The petals are made with the Stampin' Up Build a Bird punch.  I used embossing lines to give it a "handkerchief" corner.

Final card is coloured with Distress Inks, having seen some wonderful watercolour creations around Blogdom this week.  This is not in the same league painting-wise but I enjoyed making it.  Elusive Images flower stamp, sentiment and dots from Visible Image.

  10. I love these cards Anne, especially the one made with the Bird Builder punch. I use the wings a lot as leaves but you made a lovely flower with them! :)

  13. 3 quite different cards - I'm intrigued by the first paper-pieced one though, with the zentangle-type doodling. Lovely!

  15. These are all lovely Anne! I particularly like the paper-pieced one at the top - the paper you've chosen gives the flowers an orchid look. Vicky x
