Brushstroke Geranium

Hi everyone, Monday already again and time for a little Penny Black and More challenge inspiration. 
Did you play along yet? Don't miss your chance to win one of the wonderful prizes up for grabs. As always you may use any stamp manufacturer, just no digi stamps please. And don't forget you may enter up to 3 times for more chances to win. A really simple theme too so everyone can play along - anything goes!

For my card today I inked up the stamp Light Touch by Penny Black (I have this stamp available in my Etsy shop brand new if interested.
This card was really easy to make, I just used distress markers (pink and purple for the blooms and two shades of green for the leaves and stems) to color directly on the rubber. Lightly spritzed with water and then stamped onto winsor & newton watercolor paper. Did some more stamping using a music sheet stamp and honeycomb stencil and light blue ink. The sentiment is from the set Sprinkles & Smiles. Adhered to some dark gray designer paper and Stampin Up card stock.

Check out the great prizes we have this month:
