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!

Full of charm love those flowers. Good that you got a new laptop and if yours is one of those Schools appealing the Governments spending cuts good luck. We all need to tighten the belt but there are somethings that are essential. Sure you have great plans for have term LOL
