a clean and simple card. . . .


using Penny Black stamps.  I used watercolors for this image, which I am not very proficient with.  Need more practice, I guess.  The splatters were done with Dylusions spray ink and the sequins are from Michaels.

Playing in a few challenges today:

Penny Black & more: use anything but a digi. 


All Sorts Challenge:  flower power. 
Seize the Birthday:  anything goes.


Simon Says Stamp:  anything goes.  oops - missed this one!
Penny Black Simplicity: clean and simple.

Enjoy your day!

There's no way to get better except to practice, practice, practice. But I think you're doing a fine job already! Great touch using the embossing to resist.
