What's outside my window

Seeing the CASE card over at TIME Out and the theme over at LIM "what's outside your window" I deciced to make a CAS card. From the CASE card I picked the flower theme and colors.

I used a white paper with texture, masked off a square area and sponged away using shaded lilac DI - love the color as it's not too purple and not too blue.
I removed the tape and stamped a flower image using an uninked stamp from Fiskars, heat set and colored it it in using some blue, purple and green ink pads and a brush. 
I used my favorite sentiment stamp - love it because it's decorative and perfect for almost any occasion, then added the finished panel on foam onto the card base.

This card is for:
TIME OUT Challenges - #52 CASE
Less Is More - What's outside your window

Simply beautiful. I love making cards with a colour wash/stamped background and simple elegant stamping. This is a lovely version of that style. Happy Sunday. Zx

A superb CAS, my friend! I too love shaded liliac and in your watercolouring card it looks fabulous! Sweet stamp and love the sentiment. Your card is very emotional even if it's simple in the same way ... your own style is just unique! :D

Hi Pia, I finally got a chance to sit down and do some visiting. Really enjoyed your CASE card, (like even better than your inspiration, but Shhh!) The texture paper is _so_ wonderful with your design, and the DI ink sponged so beautifully, very delicate shading too. Love the sweet floral image, and you're right: the sentiment is just perfect, and so versatile for many occasions. A truly lovely & elegant card...very serene in the feel of it. TFS & Have a wonderful week.
