Turquoise and Lilac card

Hi friends, hope all is well in your world today!
Wow I see we are into October already, how
did that happen so quickly ?
It's also world card making day whoo hoo
so what better day to show you a card.
It's a colour theme over at 'Less is More'
this week and.....
Turquoise and Lilac
That sounds like a great colour combo to me,
anyway here's what I made, come and have
 a quick peek ;)
Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned
and come back on Tuesday (4th) to see the card
 I  made for the start of  'The Flower Challenge' 
blog ;) excited!!!! ;)

ps. Our visitors are gone now but still busy!
our son is coming tomorrow with his family.
 Then we are helping our other soon move
 house. They were let down with one they 
wanted to buy at the very last minute. So will
move anyway but rent a while so they can
 look again.

I used these 'shape' stamps with some distress inks. I overstamped that with
flower stem stamps. Then used a coloured pen to add deeper coloured 
stamens and stems. I added water for a 'watery' look and a few flicks of paint.
Then some Diamond dust for a crushed glass effect ;)
