Less is more challenge 2

The challenge  at Less is More this week is to use only one layer and flowers or trees. I stamped the daisies (Sheena Douglass) in Memento new sprout. I coloured with promarkers in lime zest, buttercup, almond and pale pink. The sentiment is from an elusive images plate and was stamped in Versamagic Green tea.
I was hoping for a pale watercolour effect, although the pale green outline made it harder to colour!
 I have been a bit sporadic in my visits to other blogs and posting too. I've just got my school laptop replaced after the previous one stopped working in June. I am so relieved to have a decent machine to work with, as I have been using a very old one that is incredibly slow - not great when you have a class full of children who have to wait for something to load for up to five minutes! Anyway, I've been loading all the software I need on it this week in the evenings, so crafting and blogging took a back seat. There's only a week left of this half term  before we have a week off, so I will hopefully do some catching up then. Thanks for looking!
