Single Blue Flower

Altenew is one of my absolute favorite stamp companies right now.  It is so much fun to play with all of the flower stamps that they offer.  

They are hosting a November challenge to use the colors of Navy Blue and Coral.  I pulled out my newest set of stamps that I hadn't even had time to play with yet for my card.  
 I stamped only one flower to be my focal point.  In order to add the coral I used a stencil and some Distress Stain for a "messy" background.  I used my Zig Clean Color pens on the flower and leaf.  These work amazing on the watercolor paper.  It was faster and easier to just dab the ink to the stencil with the Distress Stain.  I did spritz it with water and I love the "messy" result on the watercolor paper.  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is "thinking of you" so I thought this great sentiment fit that challenge.
 Here is the Altenew November challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
