Less is More... Spring

This is the first time I've used this Elusive Image stamp. 
I coloured directly onto the stamp with Marvy le Plume & Whispers Strokes then spritzed the stamp with water before I stamped onto watercolour card. I repeated the technique with the text stamp. The background paper I played with some time ago, can't remember what paints/inks I used.

Although I like the result  would it  have been better, as an LIM card, in an A6 format without the backing paper?

Sue, I think it's fine as it is. I love the background and it is just that... background... the image stands alone beautifully.
The technique of spritzing after inking has worked SO well here. Fabulous card!
Thanks for joining us once more and we hope to see you again next week!

Bluebells remind me of spring - I don't have this stamp but it is pretty. I like the extra background layer and the colouring is just right.

Suzi I think it's a superb card and it works for me, if it works for you and you're happy that's what matters.
