Pink base flower cards

Good morning everyone, another 5.30 am start again for me 
 lol.This cough is ruling my days and nights lately !
Anyway I have two cards to show you today , this week
over at 'Less is More' it's one layer  again and................
Coloured Card Blank
"Yes that's right, none of your boring, white, ivory, black or kraft
 card blanks we want to see you add some colour.  Here
 are our cards for this week..."
Well of course the first colour I saw me being me was PINK !
So I set to work using some more lovely new stamps I have
 bought recently. Note to self  "stop buying more stuff "................
but will I  listen.......not a chance of course!!! 
The first one is my fav I think, I stamped in black ink, then added
some distress ink using a water brush and then added some glitter.
Funnily enough I had been using my waterbrush last night thinking
I might be able to use it on my card today.........................result!
My second card  was made by stamping in white then heat 
embossing and adding some subtle colour again using a
 waterbrush. I used a Tombo pen to highlight the stems a tad
 also.A few dots around the flower centres too, job done.
 I may be back with more samples later in the week, but
we have a busy week Charlie sitting. All coming here for lunch
 tomorrow ( been trying to organize that for weeks due to illness
 with us all ). Then for his mother's birthday on Monday and then
 while they attend a funeral on Wed. So pleased I am on the 
mend now, just as well ! OH still coughing like mad but improving.
