Addicted to Stamps Challenge #139

Hello!!

Its time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!! This week the challenge is CAS (Clean and Simple) and our sponsor is STAMPlorations, i'm using a digi they provided to the Design Team!
Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - STAMPlorations
I started by printing the digi on some white card stock. I cut it out with Lawn Fawn Stitched rectangle and added it to a white card base with foam tape.

Next i used a few solid flower stamps from the Alley Way Stamps. I colored up one at a time with distress markers, then spritz it with pearlized water and stamped them on white card stock (not watercolor paper). I repeated it many more times until i had a bunch of flowers.

Then i arranged the flowers around the sentiment and adhered them to my card. I decided against adding enamel dots or sequins, figured less was more and since the challenge is CAS the less the better!
