Less is More Challenge #417

I was intrigued by the current challenge at Less is More

I'm glad that the folks at Less is More mentioned bokeh, watercolor stamping, airbrushed backgrounds. When I read watercolor stamping, I knew what to do. Here's my card

I started with an A2 panel of 96 lb bristol. I used the fern leaves from Unity Stamp's Moments in Bloom stamp set. I placed the stamp and panel in my MISTI. I inked up the stamp with mowed lawn distress ink and spritzed the stamp before "closing the door" of the MISTI. I felt that it needed a bit more color, so I inked up the edges of the stamp with forest moss distress ink and spritzed the stamp before "closing the door" of the MISTI. The stamped image wasn't out of focus enough, so I used a brush with some water to blur the image a bit more. The sentiment is from Ink Blot Shop's Botanical Borders stamp set.
