Run. I don't. Maybe from a burning building, but luckily I haven't had to test that theory. So not a lot of interest in making a card with that kind of running theme. People run for political office, but that held even less appeal. What to do? Then I thought about my distress markers, and how delightfully they *run* with water. Now that's my kind of running.
After colouring my tulip stamp, I spritzed it twice with water before stamping it on watercolour paper. I then took inspiration from Ardyth's card from last week's challenge, and cropped the full image using a circle die. I was quite pleased to discover I had a cardstock match for the tulip colour! A white-embossed sentiment finished the card.
I did have a first attempt at this, that I like, but didn't quite make it into the clean and simple category...
